Published 12:00 am Monday, January 30, 2006

One look at St. Aloysius’ 75-46 victory over Dexter, it would be hard-pressed to imagine the Lady Flashes actually trailed 9-4 in the opening minutes of the game.

Annie Beaugh hit five straight shots in the first quarter and ended the game with 31 points to pace the Lady Flashes (23-1).

Sarah Kerut poured in 22 points and Amy Beaugh scored 12 in the victory.
