UNIONVILLE -- After a sluggish first half, Community Middle was able to exploit an Eagleville Lady Eagle squad struggling to score to pull away in the second half for a 32-18 win on Monday night.

The Viqueens had two players hit double digits with Karla Pena's 12 points leading all scorers. Kizzy Lane also helped lead the Viqueen offense, scoring 10 points.

But early on, the Viqueen offense was borderline anemic, only knocking down four points in the first quarter.

Powering up

Despite being down 8-4 after the first stanza, Community hit its stride in the second quarter and took the lead for good with Pena and teammate Haley Reed providing a one-two punch with both tacking on four points.

Community went into the break up two points, but ran away with the momentum in the second half.

The Viqueens out-scored the Lady Eagles 8-0 in the third quarter, but put the game out of reach with 10 more in the fourth frame.

Free throws fall

Lane made the only trip to the charity stripe for the Viqueens in the third quarter and made both her shots count, knocking down both attempts.

Eagleville didn't make many trips to the line, either, but still shot 2-of-4 tries.

Returns to its home court on Thursday as the Viqueens welcome Moore County with the opening tipoff set for 6 p.m.
