TURPIN, Okla.—The Beaver Lady Dusters picked up another win Tuesday night against their Beaver County Bedlam rival Turpin, 46-28.

“Another physical game for us,” Lady Dusters coach Casey Jones said. “We got off to a slow start, but picked it up a little later. Jacinda came to play tonight and I was really proud of her effort.”

It was a physical game with a lot of time spent at the free throw line. Three starters for Turpin fouled out of the game, and the two teams shot a combined 55 free throws.

Beaver got to the line more often, making 16 of 38. Turpin was 9 of 17 at the charity stripe.

“It’s frustrating,” Lady Cardinals coach Jeff Funk said. “We matched up with them (Beaver) so well the last time we played. We again had trouble hitting the point blank shots and that gets us down. The girls played hard. They always do.”

A 10-0 run by the Lady Dusters late in the second quarter sparked by a pair of steals and layups by Jacinda Balderrama helped put Beaver up 19-10 at halftime.

“We bounced back and forth from trapping to playing straight up man-to-man to try to show different looks and that seemed  to catch them a few times,” Jones said.

The lead stayed in the nine-point range into the fourth quarter. With just over five minutes left, Beavdr went on an 11-3 run to put the game out of reach.

Early in the game it was the Lady Dusters going on an 8-1 run to go up 8-3 by the end of the first quarter as both teams struggled at the offensive end.

Turpin scored the next five to knot the game at eight. With 4:37 left in the first half.

Jacinda Balerrama led the Lady Dusters with 24 points, and a total of nine different players scored for Beaver.

Alyssa Kinser led Turpin with nine.

Beaver will take on Laverne in their opening round game of the Buffalo Invitational.

Turpin will take on Hooker in the first round of the Texhoma Tournament.
