Following their first home loss in more than two years last Friday night, the No. 1 Ardmore Lady Tigers were more than prepared for their regional tournament opener Thursday night at home.

Capitol Hill unfortunately wasn’t as ready.

Ardmore dominated in every aspect of the game as the Lady Tigers booked their place in the area tournament with a blowout 95-8 victory over the Lady Redwolves at the Ardmore High School Gymnasium.

The Lady Tigers will now play for the regional championship Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. against Carl Albert, who eliminated the Noble Lady Bears in the other regional semifinal contest Thursday night. 

In the first quarter, the Lady Tigers pitched a shutout as they kept the Lady Redwolves off the board while holding a 26-0 advantage going to the second.

After the break, Ardmore kept up its offensive attack with 25 points, while the Lady Redwolves had their best offensive output with five points. 

Down the stretch the Lady Tigers finished off the game with a 25-2 fourth quarter.

Amaya Gordon led the scoring with 20 points for Ardmore, with Sierra Gordon scoring 19 points. 

Shakira Smith added 15 points for Ardmore with Reagan McCurley and Miyah McGee each scoring eight points.
