In the first game of the Semi finals of sectional 46, the Lady Musketeers traveled to Henryville to face the Lady Wolfpack of Crawford County.

With an eight day lay off the Lady Musketeers came out with energy and a stifling defense, holding Crawford County to just three points in the first quarter, 12-3.

Heading into the second quarter, the Musketeers looked to keep the momentum on their side as Rachel Stewart scored eight of her thirteen points leading Eastern into halftime with the score 31-8.

The Lady Musketeers continued to roll in the second half as they were led by Taylor Drury with 18 points and 10 rebounds; along with Rachel Stewart and Bailey England pitching in 13 points a piece.

As the fourth quarter came to an end, the final score was Eastern 56, Crawford County 39. The Lady Musketeers will move onto the sectional championship tomorrow night at 730 and will look to carry on the momentum facing the Providence Poineers.
