Lady Eagles pick up third win

Fremont was in control from the start as they opened the game up 10-3. Churubusco had seven first quarter turnovers that led to nine Fremont points. Haleigh Gross hit a three-pointer and made another one the old fashioned way to lead Busco in the first quarter with six points. The score at the end of one period saw Fremont out in front  23-12. 

In the second period the closest the Eagles came to Fremont was seven points, once in a basket by Heather Monk and later on a Taylor Amber basket.  Again turnovers haunted the Lady Eagles as they committed ten more in the second quarter, with Fremont converting them into points to give them a 38-21 lead into the half.

In the second half the host Eagles outscored Churubusco to take the game 54-32.
