Logan advanced to the title game of the tournament with a resounding 57-33 win Friday over defending Class 1A champion Roy/Mosquero.

Rilee Nials led the Lady Longhorns with 17 points. Goldston added 15 points and Conway 14.

Logan 47, Dexter 36

The Lady Longhorns won its season opener with a 47-36 decision Thursday against Dexter at the Dora Tournament.

Nials scored 14 points to lead Logan, and Goldston added 10.

“Not too bad for three days of practice, but we are young and we’ve got a lot of work to do,” Strand said. Logan had just ended a COVID-19 quarantine just a few days before the tournament.

Dexter ended the week with a 1-2 record.
