The lady Eagles played tough and physical in a game that remained close in score throughout much of the play time. At half time, however, the Eagles were in the lead with a score of 19-14 and never looked back.

“I think it was a quality win,” Palmer said. “Novi ended their season 15 and 5 and they won their division, so they played pretty tough tonight. We had to earn everything we got and I think it got down to, we had a couple senior guards and their guards were a bit younger, although their guards played very well.”
