CREEKSVILLE- Using a 13-2 first quarter, the Lady Jaguars of Rocky Mount Prep never trailed as they defeated the Lady Rams of Northampton County-East here Friday night by  a 53-28 score.

The Lady Rams finally got on the board with a pair of free throws by Jomecka Deloatch with 23 seconds left in the period.

The Lady Rams’ Alexus Shoulders stopped the run with a basket which was followed quickly by a M. Haywood basket.  The Lady Rams closed out the scoring with a pair of free throws by Deloatch and a basket by Daye.

The half ended with the Lady Jaguars holding 23-11 lead.
