The Pierce City Lady Eagles routed Golden City 78-15 Tuesday night behind a 24 point performance including six 3-pointers by Kaelyn Osborn.

"We were very controlled on offense," said Pierce City coach Tiffany Dirks. "It was a great game for our girls to gain confidence in their shooting. It was great to see our girls playing at this level at this point of our season."

Pierce City led 30-5 after one quarter of play and 45-6 at halftime. The Lady Eagles outscored Golden City 33-9 in the second half.

Scoring for the Lady Eagles were: Osborn, 24; Krishna Merriman, 12; Christine Younker, 11; Megan Golubski, 8; Bailee Hayward, 7; Emily Ashley, 5; Mattie Brottlund, 3; and Becca Hatfield, Mattie Parrigon and Shania Hogan, 2 apiece.
