Glenelg Country 55, Garrison Forest 37: The host Dragons improved to 11-1 and defense played a big role.

"We've had a lot of little offensive slumps. It's been actually our defense and rebounding that had been the keys to this team," Glenelg Country coach Edward Conroy said. "We can fly around on defense and jump for those rebounds, and it's kept us in a lot of games."

Freshman forward Lola Hankins ran the floor well and finished with a game-high 16 points for the Dragons. She and Taylor Gillis — who finished with 10 points — were the catalysts, as Hankins also came up with a couple of steals and blocks. Olivia O'Leary added 12 points for Glenelg Country.
