The Lady Falcons of Florence are at the top of District 6B and are looking strong as they head into the final stretch of the season. With four senior starting, the team is experience, quick and deadly from inside or from long range. The team opened slowly against Deer Lodge with the Wardens playing aggressive defense. But the many facets of the Falcon offense soon wore the Wardens out. Florence had only a two point lead at the end of the first quarter but started scoring points in the middle of the second. Florence went on to win, 59-43. Rilee Mangun led all scorers with 20 points.
