The Effingham Lady Hearts improved to 5-0 with a 70-34 win Thursday night at Mattoon. It was the Apollo Conference for the Lady Hearts.

Effingham held a 17-4 lead after one quarter, pushed the margin to 32-13 at halftime, and were up 54-23 after three periods before outscoring the Lady Green Wave 16-11 in the fourth quarter.

Lady Hearts' Coach Jeff Schafer said, "This was a good start to the Apollo for us. Every road win is a plus. We continued where we left off. Again, everyone played a huge part. I thought Shelby (Myers) and Skylar (Schafer) did an awesome job on (Athlin) McDonald, and Aly (Armstrong) and Abby (Weis) held (Bella) Coffey without a field goal. Our bench scored more than half our points. Miranda (Fox), Natalie (Carie) and Bria (Barr) played great floor games, and Carsyn (Fearday) was Carsyn."

Effingham will be back in action Saturday afternoon at the Enlow Center against crosstown rival St. Anthony. A 1pm JV game will be followed by the varsity contest. We will broadcast the varsity game on KJ Country 102.3.

Schafer said, "We will have a tough opponent in St. Anthony on Saturday."
