The Lady Tigers trailed 29-2 at intermission and 41-4 after three periods.

The Lady Tigers were clipped by Rogers 28-24 Friday, despite leading heading into the final period.

Senior Brittany Frei put up eight points and reached eight rebounds to lead Rockdale in its largest offensive output of the young season.

Douglas chipped in six points with five assists and three steals.

"The Rogers game was a game that was a defensive battle from the beginning," said Rockdale Coach Liz McQuitter. "We outplayed them for three and a half quarters and did not make the plays down the stretch. This is the best defense the varsity has played since I got here.

"It was a shame to lose the game, but we shot four of fourteen from the free throw line and lost by four. We also missed a lot of scoring opportunities. I still see these girls pulling things together af ter they get some experience."
