Hall 47, Kewanee 32: The Hall Lady Devils notched their first win in Three Rivers Conference South Division play. Hall coach Josiah Martin said the Lady Devils’ defensive effort won the game.

“We played a great team, defensive game and contested almost every shot they took. I told the girls before the game that defense was going to win this game for us, and they went out there and played a great game,” he said. “Kewanee is a good team, so that was a good win for our team.”

Hall (5-10, 1-4) took a 16-14 lead to halftime, stretching it to 30-23 after three quarters. The Lady Devils outscored the Boiler Girls 25-15 over the second half.
