The Midway Elementary School girl’s team invited the Lady Dragons from Forge Ridge into the Midway community for a game of high spirited basketball Nov. 3. The Lady Dragons used consistent scoring to run away with a 32-14 victory.

The Lady Dragons started strong and scored nine points on the board while giving up only one during the opening period of play. Halle Greene was the Catalyst and scored four points during the opening period.

The taller Lady Dragons continued their aggressive play and scored seven more to lead at the half 16-1.

Midway was inspired by Emma Myatt and her four points during the third period and during the final period equaled Forge Ridges’ total of seven points but it was too little, too late. The Lady Dragons finished with a 32-14 victory.

Eight Lady Dragons scored including Kylie Fultz with seven. Haylee Stargill finished with six, Abbie Fultz with five points and two others scored four points: Halle Greene and Brooklyn Daniels. Angel Fultz, Shelby Brewer and Hayley Muse.

Midway was led by Gracie Ray with six points, Emma Myatt had four points and two other Red Devils scored two each: Reagan Lester and Morgan Wells.
