St. Marys trailed by only three points after the first quarter, but Northwestern poured on the offence as the game carried on and DCVI eventually fell 51-35. The Junior Girls won their first game Wednesday 58-8 over South Huron.

First-place Northwestern is an undefeated 7-0. Also playing at home Wednesday, the Senior girls went 1-1, beating Northwestern 40-30, but falling 36-18 to South Huron. At 3-5, the Senior Girls are tied for seventh in their league. Rankin photo
