If the Munford Lady Cougars were making New Year’s resolutions, they might say they need to be more consistent.

Over the holidays, Steve Poindexter’s group played in the Dyersburg Christmas Tournament against some elite competition with good results. Then on Saturday night to start 2016, the Lady Cougars traveled to Millington to take on the rival Millington Lady Trojans in the William Osteen Gymnasium.

Munford played consistently for 32 minutes against the Lady Trojans to earn a 57-27 win.

The William Osteen Gymnasium scoreboard should have read: Munford Cougars 16, Cameron Crawford 15.

The Millington Trojans came out Saturday night getting 2016 off to a good start hitting his first five attempts from behind the arch. Crawford kept the Trojans in the game against their rivals Munford in the first 8 minutes with the Cougars holding a one-point advantage entering the second quarter.

Then it was time for Cougar senior guard Queyon Mills to get the hot hand. He scored 15 points in the second period to stretch out the Munford lead to 39-23 at the break.

The second half Domonique Bell grabbed the torch to light up the scoreboard leading to a 69-42 victory for the Cougars.
