    The Lady Lions took a 16-14 lead in the opening period, and both teams added seven in the second for a 23-21 score at the half.
    The Lady Lions were able to stretch their lead to 34-29 in the third before coming out with the win.
    Smith led the Lady Lions with 14 points on the night, and Cranford had 10.
    Logan Oestreich put up nine, Libby Snodgrass and Kaylee Newsom had five each and Shawnee Shepherd and Addison Crow added two each.
    The Lady Lions will travel to Fouke Friday night. Tip-off will follow the junior girls game.
