Howe 48, Leonard 40


The Howe Lady Bulldogs outscored Leonard, 21-6 in the fourth quarter, pulling away for an upset win over the Lady Tigers on Tuesday night in Leonard.


Trailing by seven points heading into the fourth quarter, the Howe defense shut down the potent Lady Tiger offense for the win.


One of the major keys to the win was the Lady Bulldogs rebounding tenacity as they punished Leonard on the boards.


Junior Peyton Streetman had 19 points to lead the Howe attack and she collected six rebounds. Senior Kayla Anderson added eight points and six boards and freshman Ally Harvey collected eight rebounds in the contest. Senior Landry Rhoten had six points and six rebounds in the win.


Howe will host Commerce on Friday night.
