Junior Meg Morningstar did the inside work with 10 points on 5 of 7 shooting. The Lady Tigers outrebounded the Mustangs 34-17 and held Plum to just 24 percent shooting from the field. The Mustangs connected on only 18 percent in the second half.
The Lady Tigers improve to 16-1 overall with the non-section win. Plum falls to 11-6. North Allegheny visits Pine-Richland on Thursday night with an opportunity to capture the section title outright. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
