A stifling defensive effort that forced numerous turnovers helped lift the Lady Lions to an easy 52-28 win over the host Spartans from the Community School of Davidson.

Elizabeth Franklin scored 10 of her game-high 16 points in a first-half push for CCS helped the Lions build a huge lead over CSD.

The Spartans hi two baskets in the first four minutes of the first quarter then did not score for well over the next seven minutes of the first half. CCS’s constant pressure on the ball forced turnovers and held the host Spartans to 2-of-12 shooting in the first quarter and 0-of-8 in the second.

“Defensively, we were solid tonight,” CCS head coach Randy Burris said.

“We imposed ourselves and got the pace of game we wanted.”

Burris added that he would “love to play every team in Stanly County” and that his team looks forward to games against in-county opponents like Gray Stone.
