Vicksburg High School girl’s basketball team took down Port Gibson on Saturday in a 77-56 win.

The Missy Gators started off rocky as they trailed in the beginning. Midway through the first quarter Layla Carter took things into her own hands as she knocked down a couple of 3-pointer to give VHS a 17-12 lead.

The second quarter consisted of the same thing with Carter continuing to get layups along with Janiah Caples who was able to drop a few points before halftime.

Coming out of halftime, VHS was up 39-32 when they began playing tough defense to shut the Blue Waves down. Rodrianna Hall knocked down a couple of 3-pointers in the third quarter along with Kierra James and Carter with a 61-42 lead.

The Missy Gators continued to have control of things in the final quarter as Kalia Bland got a couple of buckets in the win.
