The Lady Indians kept the game within a point at the end of one, but Pinkston opened up a little daylight in the second frame, outscoring WHS 19-14 to take a 30-24 halftime edge. The second half was mostly played on even terms, but the Lady Indians were unable to battle any closer than three points by the end of the third.

The Lady Indians were scheduled to host South Oak Cliff in another non-district tilt at Mike Turner Gymnasium on Tuesday night. They will host Denton Braswell on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
