The unbeaten and — depending on which poll you rely on — either second- or fourth-ranked team in the state got three more wins this past week.

The Lady Patriots put a 20-1 shellacking on Murphysboro on April 16, then shut out Graves County on the road Saturday and eked out a 2-1 win over Herrin Monday afternoon.

The whipping at Murphy evidenced the depth of this team.
