The Lady Eagles played at North Huron last Thursday, winning by 3 points, 32-29.
The girls had a nice first quarter lead, 11-4, and led at the half, 15-8. In the third quarter, North Huron outscored the Eagles by 1, 9-8 and again in the fourth, 12-9, but the first quarter lead was too much for the Warriors to overcome.
