GRAVETTE -- Lion fans of all ages poured into the Lion's Den on Nov. 16 to cheer on their beloved Lady Lions as the team took on 6A powerhouse Har-Ber Lady Wildcats from Springdale in a nonconference contest. By the end of the night, the Lady Wildcat invasion of the Lion's Den proved successful as they took the win by 38 points.

With less than 30 seconds off the clock in the first quarter, Lady Wildcat Pacious McDaniel was fouled by Gravette, sending her to the free-throw line for two. McDaniel hit both shots and Har-Ber was off and running. Har-Ber hit another two-point field goal before the Lady Lions scored a field goal of their own, trailing the Lady Wildcats by two. The Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 12 point lead by the end of the first quarter.

By the 2:30 minute mark in the second quarter, Har-Ber continued to dominate the boards, holding Gravette to a pair of two-pointers while continuing to build its lead to 22 points. By the end of the first half, the Lady Wildcats held the lead over the Lady Lions, 38-13.

The Lady Lions cut into the Lady Wildcat's lead early in the third quarter but it was not enough and Har-Ber took home the victory, 69-31, over Gravette.

Leading the scoring drive for the Lady Lions was Alexa Parker with 10 points, followed by Dalacie Wishon, Reese Hamilton and Rachel Deihl with five each. Brooke Handle contributed two points and Graci Moffet connected on a free throw for one.
