Liberal jumped out to a 21-0 lead. Abilene didn’t score until the four minute mark of the first quarter.  LHS led 26-2 and led 26-5 after one quarter.  The Cowgirls lassoed a 14-0 run to cut the Lady Red lead to 10 at 26-16.  Liberal led 35-19 at halftime.  The Lady Redskins held Abilene scoreless the first seven minutes of the second half.  Liberal led 50-22 after three.
Ashley Carrillo scored 17.  Halle Payton sank four three pointers for a career high 12 points.  Hailey Contreras had 10.  Bree Horyna and Reece Hay had nine a piece.
