Purcell dispatched Bridge Creek in their first action back from the Christmas break with the girls popping the Lady Bobcats, 51-34.
Led by freshman Kenna Esparza’s 15 points the Dragons led from the get-go and never looked back.
Purcell built a commanding 28-8 lead at halftime and continued their assault on the visitors in the second half.
Coach David Sikes got a balanced scoring attack with 10 players making it into the scoring book.
“We played well from the tip,” coach David Sikes said.
“We continue to create and force turnovers and apply pressure.
“We shared the ball very well compiling 16 assists,” the coach continued.
“It was a good game and a great win for us to get right out of the break,” Sikes concluded.
Roger Raper’s Dragons pounded the Bobcats, 66-37.
Led by junior Malachi Evans with 21 points, the Dragons came out on fire and built a 35-20 lead at intermission.
The Dragons continued the defensive pressure and high powered offense in the final two stanzas.
Joining Evans in double digits were freshman Kobe Freeman and senior Nate Willis with 11 each.
“I was very pleased with our effort throughout the whole game,” head coach Roger Raper said.
“We were really locked in on the defensive end and played better on the offense end than we had to this point.
“We know we can get better and this team really approaches each day with that thought in mind. Nate Willis got us off to a great start and senior Adolfo Vasquez was tremendous on the defensive end.
“Malachi Evans was very aggressive on the offensive end and lead us in scoring with 21 points,” the coach concluded.
Both teams were 6-2 heading into Tuesday’s road trip to Lexington. Purcell will host Marlow this Friday and travel to Washington next Tuesday.
