Randall and Erica Eneks each did their damage in that area, with both finishing with 8 rebounds. Carter propelled the Lady Eagles to a 35-25 halftime lead behind a 16 point first half effort. Ozarks opened up the second half with an early double digit lead when Randall nailed a three-pointer at the 16:57 mark. Ozarks increased their advantage to 51-34 when Eneks hit another three-pointer. Randall again canned a trifecta one minute later to put the Lady Eagles in control for the remainder of the contest. Louisiana College (5-11, 3-9) never really got close in the second half as Ozarks’ lead ballooned to 67-42 on a Randall shot beyond the arc with 6:48 remaining. Randall ended with 25 points and Carter followed with 24 points. Randall and Eneks hit a combined 7-of-14 from the three-point line. Eneks finished with 15 points. Chandra Briggs had a team-high 8 assists. Ozarks will host Mississippi College on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
