If one thing has been made clear in the first part of the season, it's this--the Community Viqueens are the real deal.

Community has been on an absolute tear through the schedule recently, winning six straight games, three of which have been against district opponents.

The latest victim the Viqueens knocked off were the Eagleville Lady Eagles on Friday night with the Viqueens winning in blowout fashion, 65-25.

Community was in total control of the game from the opening tip off to the final buzzer.

The Viqueens raced out to a 17-8 lead after one quarter of play.

One strong point the Viqueens took advantage of was the mismatch on the defensive side of the ball. The stifling pressure forced 11 Eagleville turnovers in the first two quarters alone.

That defensive pressure, coupled with the Viqueens' high-powered offense, the Lady Eagles could do little as far as organizing their own offensive game plan.

Katie Leverette helped get the Viqueens going with seven points in the first frame alone with freshman Mercedes Huntley adding four as well.

With the offense spreading the attack, Eagleville struggled all night to hinder the offensive game plan the Viqueens brought to the table.

By attacking the Lady Eagles in such demoralizing fashion in the first half, Eagleville never really got anything moving in the final 16 minutes of play, only coming up with nine total points in the third and fourth quarters combined.

Community, on the other hand, continued to spread the attack and added 27 more points.

In all, the Viqueens were about as efficient as they could be. Of 12 total team members, 11 saw shots fall for the Purple and Gold.

Per usual, Katie Leverette led the way with a game-high 14 points with a key 13 points from freshman guard Sarah Pierce.

The Viqueens also found success at the line, cashing in on 16-of-27 tries for a solid 59 percent.

Community has a pair of non-district match ups set for next week in the Community Christmas Classic against the Webb School and Cornersville before taking a break until the Viqueens' next district game against Huntland on Jan. 4.

Eagleville 8 8 6 3 -- 25

Community 17 21 11 16 -- 65

Halftime score: Community 38, Eagleville 16.
