Lady Scorps push past Kirtland Central, 54-39

The Daily Times staff

FARMINGTON – The Farmington Lady Scorpions stayed ahead of the curve on the scoreboard with some well-timed kick-out 3-pointers and fast-break points, topping Kirtland Central 54-39 tonight at Scorpion Arena in Farmington.

Both sides generated key defensive stops early on when dropping back into the paint. Both side also dealt with some sloppy plays trying to get things going.

But in the end, Farmington had multiple possessions that led to that extra key field goal. First came the big 3s out from the corners. Then came the big deflection-turned outlet pass, which led to that extra transition bucket.

FHS improved to 10-4, while Kirtland's now 9-4.
