In the second half they added 22 points to their score, while Millwood managed 23 points but it wasn’t enough in the end.
Lockview was led by Norah Lawerence who was like an eagle and the basketball was her prey as she spit out 21 points to power the Dragons offence.
Isabel Ralph and Calla Angel, each contributed eight points apiece while Avery MacFarlane added six points to contribute the secondary scoring.
