It was payback time for the Avonworth girls’ basketball team when they hosted Freedom in a section game last Thursday.
Unlike their first meeting, a 74-72 loss on the road earlier in the season, the 'Lopes held the Bulldogs’ offense in check on their way to a 51-37 win.
"We knew it was going to be a fight," said Leah Uhernik, who was able to even the score against her alma mater in her first year as head coach .
"We corrected a lot of things since then. Playing good defense has been our focus," she said.
