CUMBY — The Cumby Lady Trojans saw Savannah Neal pump in 20 as they took a 60-39 home court win.

It was all about keeping it all even, even numbers that is. Neal scored an even 20 points against the Lady Bobcats along with an even split of eight on assists and steals and took down two from the boards. Racking up other double figures in round ball action were Courtney Steward and Brittany Seely evenly splitting 28 of the Cumby points and Laura Oviedo netted 10.

Cumby jumped ahead of their opponent in the first, but the two teams evened it up with a point total of 10-all before the break buzzer. Fruitvale tried to recover in the third outscoring the Lady Trojans by only one.  But Cumby had the game won by the fourth with a tilt of 60-39.

The victory moves the Lady Trojans to a positive 7-3 district record with 23-4 overall for season. They travel to North Hopkins Tuesday beginning at 4:30 with junior varsity.
