Massac County’s Lady Patriots may be hitting their stride at the right time. With regionals just around the corner, the girls are playing with a little old fashioned “moxie.” A little more patience on offense, a lot more movement on defense, as well as offense, and some better shot selection have the girls on a four-game winning streak at just the right time.

After an extended “snow-cation,” the ladies went back to work Friday against a good Benton team and, somewhat surprisingly, turned in a very solid, workmanlike effort in a 62-45 win.

After being tied at 16 at the first quarter horn, the girls harassed the Rangerettes enough to double them up in the second frame at 16-8.

Leading 32-24 at the half, the Lady Pats opened the third with a 9-2 run and things were basically over then. Massac kept the lead in double figures and took the 17-point win.
