In the first game it was apparent that the Lady Panthers were in for a fight. Monroe jumped out to a 5-0 lead but the Lady Panthers closed the gap to 5-4, but that would be as close as they would get as the Lady Falcons just ran away from the Lady Panthers in the first game winning easily 25-10.
In the second game the fire was back as the Lady Panthers scrapped and fought to keep the game close early, only down 7-5. But the Monroe County Lady Falcons displayed a scrappy and gritty attitude that will help them against Greenwood Thursday. The Lady Panthers couldn't hold their intensity as the Lady Falcons cruised past them to a 25-11 victory and knocked the Lady Panthers out of the tournament.
