    "We had some trouble with their 1-3-1 half-court trap in the first half," said Perry Central Coach Sarah Spindler. "Then we made some adjustments and handled it well the second half.

    "Our guards played really well. We had Audra (Gehlhausen, who had missed five games with an injury) back and that gave us a little more depth at the guard position. I think that may have helped."
