MCLOUD—The McLoud Lady Redskins fell into an early hole and fell to the Mt. St. Mary's Lady Rockets Tuesday night, 55-34.

Mt. St. Mary's took the early 16-9 lead after the first quarter and held a 24-19 lead at the intermission. That was as close as it would be on this night.

The Lady Rockets outscored McLoud 31-15 in the second half to cruise to the 21-point victory.

Cheyenne Banks led McLoud in scoring with 14 points while Katlyn Hoover netted eight for the Lady Redskins.

It doesn't get any easier later this week as McLoud (6-11) will travel to face the Dale Lady Pirates Friday night.
