If the Pepperell girls were looking for a momentum builder for the final few weeks of the season, they certainly found it Tuesday night.

Hosting Coosa in a Region 7-AA game, the Lady Dragons had 10 players reach the scoring column as they rolled to a 55-16 victory.

Freshman Madison Wilder finished with a team-high 16 points for the Lady Dragons (10-9, 3-5).

Pepperell raced out to a 17-6 lead at the end of the first quarter and outscored Coosa 13-0 in the next eight minutes for a 30-6 halftime lead.

Pepperell sophomore Erin Wilder added 12 points and senior Caroline Holbrook had 10.

Pepperell’s defense limited Coosa to six points or less in each quarter.

The Lady Dragons will host Region 7-AA leader Calhoun on Friday.
