Latta —

“I have the utmost respect for Zach Snow and how good he is. We tried to attack him a little bit defensively and make it a little tougher on him on the offensive end,” Husband said.

Latta 61, Konawa 16

The Lady Panthers used a suffocating defense to keep the Konawa offense shut down. Latta scored the first 10 points of the game and led 17-1 before Danielle Khoury hit the first Konawa field goal of the game at the 6:55 mark of the second quarter.

After a 3-pointer by Krisha Young with 1:04 left in the second quarter, Latta led 25-3. The Lady Tigers hit just one of their first 13 field goals and had committed 14 of their 30 turnovers by halftime.

The Lady Panthers exploded for 24 points in the third quarter and outscored Konawa 12-2 over the final eight minutes.

Konawa had no answer for Latta post player Nelaina Baker, who scored 17 points (one point more than the entire Konawa team) and grabbed six rebounds. Young added 13 points and four steals for Latta while Shelbey Parnacher followed with 11 points and three takeaways.

Khoury and Kamry Walker scored five points each for the Lady Tigers.
