Carlee Odom finished with eight, Joanna Larsen and Brittany Morris registered six apiece, Kayla Gest and Kenleigh West-Wing both produced four, and Molly Kirbie, Olivia Deeds and Whitney Morris all finished with two.

“It was a night and day difference for our team from how we played Tuesday,” Centreville coach Jill Peterson said. Tonight we pushed the tempo but were patient, took care of the ball but played aggressively, and overall this is a great way to go into Christmas break with a game like that. It’s always nice to see the things that we work on in practice carry over into games. Tonight we were clicking.”
