Our 5th game of the day saw Liberty-Payson taking on a tough Routt squad.  Both teams got out to a very slow with Liberty holding a 8-6 lead after one quarter.  Then in the 2nd quarter, Routt when on a run that allowed them to pull ahead and never look back.  The Lady Rockets really played solid defense in the second half which allowed them to continue to push forward to the 45-30 victory.  Neither team really played their best ball during this contest but it is just hard for some teams to get that performance coming directly out of a break and a holiday weekend.  But Routt was finally able to find that motivation in the second half and really this team looked like a team that could compete for the title.  Kristen Loos led the Lady Eagles with 10 points while Joanna Gross led the Lady Rockets 12.  Routt now advances on to take on a very tough Illini West team in the Quarterfinals.  Also, congratulation to Routt Head Coach Joe Eilering on picking up his 100th victory as head coach of the Lady Rockets.
