The Springville girls cruised past Leeds Friday to take a road win for their last regular season game, 52-20.
Springville jumped out to an early lead 12-0 halfway into the first quarter. While Leeds had multiple shot opportunities, the Tigers limited the Green Wave to no points going into the second quarter, 24-0.
Springville continued to out-rebound Leeds throughout the rest of the half, keeping second chance shots to a minimum.
Selah Larson put the first points on the board for the Green Wave in the second quarter. Katelyn Sims and Zoie Galloway also pushed the score up for Leeds before heading into halftime 26-5.
Both teams later put the score at 45-13 by the end of the third before Springville eventually put the game away.
Head coach Warren House said he saw some positives from his team on the court.
“We converted some turnovers, got some shots early, we rebounded well,” he said. “We’re trying to work on some things and get ready for Monday’s game. We’ll see them done but we didn’t necessarily see them done (tonight).”
Olivia Carroll led the Tigers in scoring with 10 points followed by Farrah Hawkins who put up nine. Abbie Talton and Makalyn Kyser also boosted their team with eight apiece.
Jazmyn Mcgee and Sims were both the top scorers for Leeds with five points each.
