Falls City Sacred Heart used defense and three-point shooting to blow by visiting Elmwood-Murdock, 44-17 last Friday night at Prichard Auditorium.
The Lady Irish, still undefeated and top-ranked, held the Lady Knights to an 0-for-14 performance from the three-point line, while they converted six of the 13 attempts they had from downtown.
Abby Magdanz was responsible for a pair of those treys and led all scorers with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Ashli Jordan drained three three-pointers and scored 11.
Brenna Backemeyer scored 13 of E-M’s 17 points.
