Elwood sweeps Alex in double-header


In the girls contest, Elwood's early full-court press launched the Panthers into a sizable lead and the home team never was seriously threatened.

The Tigers had nine turnovers in the opening quarter and the Panthers spread the scoring among six players in taking an 18-4 advantage after eight minutes.

It was nearly as bad in the second quarter as Elwood outscored Alexandria 20-9 in that period for a 38-13 advantage at intermission.

The Panthers had four score nine or more points. Ten players saw action and all scored. Katelyn Leisure and Tenasha Stephens each scored a dozen points. Leisure got half of her points from long range and Stephens worked inside, where she also led the team in rebounding with seven. Elwood won the battle of the boards 39-31.

The Tigers were also hurt by poor shooting as they hit just 10-of-45 from the field. No Alexandria player scored more than the eight by Morgan Oliver. Kennedy Aiman had seven points. She and Macie Cox each had six rebounds for the Tigers.

Alexandria dropped to 3-11 with the loss and Elwood improved to 10-5.
