Meghan Gilhool added another 3 point shot for Montrose to end the first quarter with a score of 19-9 in favor of Montrose.
Whitaker popped in another 3 pointer in the second quarter, but other than a foul shot made by Megan Getz that was all points that the Lady Eagles could put on the score board in the second quarter.
The Lady Meteors continued as they had in the first quarter scoring 17 more points; four more by Lattimore and Gilhool, and six put in by Morgan Groover who also blocked two shots on defense. Angela Russell was two for two on foul shots giving the Lady Meteors a 37- 13 lead at half time.
