"The girls did amazing," she said. "Every girl did their part and played their role. It was nice having Daisy back and extremely nice having other girls in double digits. We are better when we have multiple girls scoring."

"We needed this game. The past couple of weeks have been rough but tonight was much needed to help us get back to who we are," Moore continued. "Wood River has a good coach and tonight they were missing one of those key players but they are still a good team without her. Because of this, our entire scout had to adjust and the girls did a good job adjusting."

Lily Tretter, Kaylyn Buttry and Kaylyn St. Peters each led the Oilers with six points each, while Jordan Ealey hit for five points.

The Shells are now 5-6. while EAWR is now 6-5.
