Following last Thursday night’s victory over Middlesex, the Mathews High School JV girls’ basketball team is now 3-0 in Conference 42 play.
 
The Lady Devils came back from their largest deficit this season after a slow start in the first half to pull out a 32-31 victory.
 
Taking advantage of two injured Lady Chargers, Mathews stepped up its defensive game, closing the 14-point fourth quarter lead Middlesex had. In the closing minutes, Mathews finally was able to capitalize on its aggressive full-court press to force turnovers and convert them into easy layups.
