Clarksville, Ark.-Howard Payne needed a 10-0 run at the midway point of the second half to fight off a scrappy Lady Eagles team in a 67-49 win Thursday in American Southwest Conference play.

With a 46-36 advantage at the 11:34 mark of the second half, Howard Payne (6-0, 4-0) used a 10-0 spurt to all but put away the Lady Eagles (2-5, 0-3). Ozarks would cut it to 56-44 behind an Ashley Teague three-pointer with 6:51 left, but that would be as close as they could get in the final twenty.

The first ten minutes of the game proved to be frenetic as the contest went back-and-forth. Ozarks held a 14-12 lead at the 9:57 mark of the first half behind a Lacey Phillips three. The Lady Eagles wouldn’t hold the lead for long though as the NCAA III defending national champions answered with a basket on their next possession. The Jackets, who extended their win streak to 39 games, then closed out the half with a 20-8 run to hold a 32-22 halftime lead.

Phillips ended with a team-high 13 points. She canned 3-of-8 from the three-point line. Sabrina Goddard added 12 points and Teague had 11 points. Olivia Fisher snagged 11 rebounds.

Ozarks will host Sul Ross State University this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The game can be heard locally on KXIO 106.9 and on the web at
