Weatherford turned up the defensive pressure after an uneven first quarter and rolled to a 51-33 win over Harrah to win the Jones Longhorns Kiwanis Club Invitational.

The Class 4A No. 4 Lady Eagles took control in the second quarter, helped by three steals from junior Macy Stark.

“She does a really good job. She has active hands and is really quick,” Weatherford coach Dusty Torrey said.

After trailing by one after one, Weatherford scored the first seven points of the second and No. 8 Harrah never again threatened the lead.

Stark finished with six steals overall.

Chandler Roof led Weatherford with 20 points, hitting all 10 of her free throws. Rylie Torrey scored 13.

The Lady Eagles (19-0) were 16 of 17 from the line.

“I like what we're doing but we're still evolving offensively,” Torrey said. “We've got to keep working to get everyone involved on that end.”

Harrah was led by Blake Blessington's 14 points.
