Despite getting 23 points from Keyvonnia Kyles, the W.S. Neal Lady Eagles lost to Flomaton 58-30 Tuesday.
“Our ladies were just simply over powered by their big girls,” W.S. Neal Lady Eagle head coach John Saxon said. “We had a great game plan going into the game and we hit our first two shots from then field. We then went into our full court press and they had trouble with that. We forced four quick turnovers then we became intimidated after that by their big girls. My girls never gave up and I am proud of them.”
