Angelina College’s Lady Roadrunners on Wednesday earned a little payback against Jacksonville College – the team that beat AC by a single bucket back in January.
The Lady ‘Runners exploded from the opening tip, racing out to leads of 14-0 and 17-2 on the way to a 77-49 win at Shands Gymnasium.
Britney Thompson scored 11 of her game-high 22 points in the first quarter, and the Lady Roadrunner defense held the Lady Jags to just 30 percent field goal shooting for the entire game.
AC’s Tai Porchia finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for her third double-double in the past three games. Lovietta Walker added 12 points and Mycah McDonald 10 in pushing the Lady Roadrunners’ current winning streak to four straight games.
Jacksonville’s McKayla Black led the Jaguars with 11 points.
The Lady ‘Runner defense forced 20 Jacksonville turnovers, converting those into 29 points.
AC (16-10, 8-7) will travel to Paris College on Saturday. Game time is 2 p.m.
