Veteran guard Sarah Culp scored 15 points and forward Lauren-Devereaux added 10 in a 52-29 win here Thursday night over Rockwell-City-Lytton.

Despite the score, Mustang coach Dick Jungers said the game was a "hard-fought battle.

"I was impressed by our girls' ability to take RCL out of its offense. Our kids are doing a great job at playing as a team and taking what the defense gives us."

With the win, Newell-Fonda improved to 3-0

Thursday night, the Mustangs outscored RCL in every quarter.

They led 10-8 after the first quarter and 10-7 in the second for a slim 20-15 lead at the intermission.
