Coach Allison Martin's team continues to roll with a dominant 64-40 win over Fayetteville City on Friday night.

Jordan Huntley hit a 3-pointer and Sarah Pierce had four points as the Viqueens jumped out to a 14-4 advantage after one period.

The Community defense led the way with a number of steals out of the press that led to easy transition baskets on the other end to post a 32-14 cushion at the half.

Lacey Reed had four points for the home team.

It was no contest from there for the Purple and Gold as Katie Leverette controlled the paint to the tune of 10 points in the third period to widen the gap to 52-26, despite three 3-pointers by the Lady Tigers' Tamia Baker.

"I felt that we had good shot selection tonight," Viqueen coach Allison Martin said. "We were able to get off to a quick start and our defense was able to keep them from getting any kind of consistency on offense. It was a good win."

Kaitlyn Ensey notched six points in the fourth and Mercedes Huntley contributed four to close it out for the Viqueens.

Community hit 13-of-17 free throws.

The Lady Tigers were 11-of-23 from the line.

Leverette led the Community effort with 14 points. Pierce added 13.

Trevah Thompson led the visitors with 14. Baker contributed 12.

Community hosted district foe MTCS on Saturday night.

The Viqueens travel to Eagleville on Tuesday night for a 6:00 tip-off.
