When junior Sydney Johnson launched a 3-pointer at the first period buzzer, Flippin had secured a 15-5 advantage.The second period showcased more firepower from the Lady Bobcats.
Down 24-6 at the 2:15 mark, the Lady Greyhounds got a pair of buckets from junior Nicole Ellison and senior Amy Winberry to momentarily stem the Flippin tide.
Halftime found the Lady Greyhounds down 26-10.Salem came out in the third period with a solid gameplan, takeing advantage of their height by feeding the ball into their post players.
The only problem with this was the Lady Greyhounds were unable to convert these passes into baskets.
A pair of sophomores, Ashley Smith and Heather Bales, did most of the damage for Salem inside the paint in the third, but when the period ended, Flippin was up by a count of 42-21.
It was all Flippin in the final frame as they cruised to an easy 62-36 victory.
