Lady Eagles Drive through Playoffs
The Lady Eagles have started off their playoff run on top! They dominated the competition in both the Bi-District and Area games. On February 12, during the first playoff game, the Lady Eagles took on the Centennial Titans at McKinney High School. They were able to keep the scoreboard running throughout the game. At the end of the first quarter the Eagles led 12-5 against the Titans, and went into halftime ahead 32-14. Prosper prevailed at the end of the game, defeating the Titans. The Lady Eagles were awarded the Bi-District Championship and advanced to the next round of playoffs.
Just a few short days later, the Prosper traveled to Plano Senior High to take on the Lovejoy Leopards for the Area Championship. The Lady Eagles took charge from the tip-off, dominating Lovejoy in the first quarter 20-2. The Leopards rallied back a bit in the 2nd, but Prosper stayed strong…going into the locker room ahead 28-15 at the half. Both teams came out strong in the 3rd quarter, but Prosper proved to be too much, as they overtook the Leopards. Winning by nearly a 30 point advantage, Prosper walked away with the Area Championship with a final score of 62-33.
