Senior guard Kate Liston led all scorers with 17 points as the Warren Lady Warriors defeat the Eastern Lady Eagles, 61-42 at Warren High School.

Eastern Senior Madison Williams returned to the floor tonight after missing considerable parts of each of the last two seasons with multiple ACL tears. She led the Lady Eagles with 12 points.

The Lady Eagles scored first, but after the Lady Warriors took a 3-2 lead early in the first quarter, they went on a 18-6 run for the rest of the quarter and never trailed for the rest of the game

Warren scored 40 of their 61 points in the first half, outscoring Eastern 21-8 in the first quarter and 19-10 in the second quarter.

The Lady Warriors took their early lead by capitalizing on a lot of Eastern mistakes. The Lady Eagles turned the ball over fifteen times in the first half and committed nine first-half fouls. In addition, Warren was very effective from the field, shooting 16-31 in the first half. Meanwhile, Eastern shot 11-24 in the first.

The second half was a different story for both teams. Warren slowed down the pace of their offense, attempting only twenty shots from the floor and making nine of them. Eastern cleaned up their game, committing only nine turnovers in the second half. Their shooting numbers were similar to the first half, shooting 9-21 in the second, but they outscored Warren in the second half, 24-21.

Eastern’s foul troubles never improved, though. In the second half, they committed eight fouls, and had two players, Elizabeth Collins and Alyson Bailey, foul out of the game.

For Warren, Kate Liston led the way with 17 points. Peyton Bowe added ten, Olivia Alloway and Emily Jackson had nine.

Madison Williams was the top scorer for the Lady Eagles with 12 points, Jess Parker had 11, Kaitlyn Hawk had eight.

The next team to try to take down the Warren Lady Warriors will be the Meigs Lady Marauders on December 4th. Eastern will try to rebound from this loss as they host the South Gallia Lady Rebels on December 4th.
