Going up against the second-ranked team in Class AAA, Blackhawk didn't pick the best time to have an off-shooting night.

But the top-ranked Cougars found a way to remain perfect.

Blackhawk (20-0, 11-0) outscored host Central Valley (16-3, 8-3) by 10 points in the second quarter and that was the difference in a 63-56 victory in Section 2.

"We had a cold-shooting night, but still had the lead," said Blackhawk coach Steve Lodovico. "That's a good sign."

Central Valley led, 14-12, after the first quarter, with Madi Rowan scoring 8 of her game-high 27 points. The Cougars then outscored their hosts, 18-8, in the second quarter to lead by eight points at halftime.

Blackhawk was led by Alexis Graham and Chassidy Omogrosso, who had 18 and 16 points, respectively. Seairra Barrett added 19 points for the Warriors.
