The visiting Rockets managed only eight buckets on the night as the Tigers pulled away in the second half for a 30-20 non-league victory.

WL-Salem is now 4-3 on the season, while the Rockets drop to 4-1.

The Tigers held Anna guard Ella Doseck, who came in averaging over 20 points per game, to just two points.

WL-Salem collected 12 steals and forced 27 Anna turnovers. “Our defensive effort by far was what won the game for us,” said WL-Salem head coach Dennis McIntosh. “I thought our girls did a really good job with Doseck. I think she was averaging about 25 points.”
