“I think we played hard, but Malcolm plays a different kind of hard,” David City coach Nathan Wall said. “Our man to man did cause problems at times, but they have some things you can’t guard like a 6’2” girl with amazing footwork.”

Chaquoya Givens had the first points of the game to put David City up 2-0. Malcolm's McKenzie Teten’s steal and layup tied the game at 2-2.

The Clippers went on a 12-2 run to build a 14-2 lead.

Olivia Couch showed her toughness underneath for a layup to cut the margin to 19-12.Malcolm responded with a jumper by Kelsey Brady. Givens continued to cause problems for the Clippers underneath with a layup to make it 25-16.

“Chaquoya Givens had 22 points and missed very few shots for us, which was positive to see,” Wall said.

Heading into halftime David City trailed 33-21.
