But West Hancock tightened the screws defensively in the second quarter before it scorers started to find their rythym and range on way to soaring to a 62-24 victory.

Sophomore Mallory Leerar scored a game-high 24 points and Kennedy Kelly added 16 for the Eagles (11-4).

Lydia Staudt (9 pts.), Ava Ellis (7), Delaney Ruzicka (4), Lauren Staudt (2) and Hannah Hoffman (2) accounted for the scoring for Charles City (0-12).
