"I think we are still trying to find our stride," said Purdy coach Eli Ernst. "We are beginning to see some players step up and play at a higher level."

The Lady Eagles outscored College Heights 14-7 in the third period to take a 50-17 lead into the fourth quarter.

Purdy boys

In the nightcap, of the doubleheader, Purdy earned a 69-40 victory over the Cougars.

"We missed some easy shots in the first half," said Purdy coach Tommy Egan. "We picked up the effort in the second half. Our pressure led to some easy baskets that seemed to get us going."

The Eagles (3-1) led 15-12 at the end of the first period and 27-23 at halftime.

After a close first half, the second belonged to Purdy.

The Eagles outpaced the Cougars 22-8 in the third period and 20-9 in the fourth quarter.

"We have still yet to put together a complete game," said Egan. "We have played well for a half in all four games. I would like to see us put together four solid quarters."

Scoring for College Heights: Ryan Beaver, 13; Josh Hamilton, 12; Josh Woodmansee, 6; Caleb Stratton, Joe Sherwood, Luke Cummins and Tyler Melton, 2 points each; and Logan Worthington, 1.
