Moore County (10-1, 4-0 District 9-A) ran its win streak to seven games and sits a perfect 4-0 as the Raiderettes head into the Christmas break.

With the help of two 3-pointers from Kizzey Lane and six points from Alyssa Freeman, Community (6-5, 0-3) got rolling in the fourth quarter. The Viqueens scored 18 points in the period, but the deficit was too much to overcome.
