The Slidell Lady Greyhounds inched closer to locking up the second playoff seed out of District 21-A Division II Tuesday.

Behind 25 points from Caitlin Pruett, the Lady Greyhounds pounded Gold-Burg 51-27.

“It wasn’t a real crisp performance for us, but it’s a win,” said Slidell coach Cody Vanover. “We need to beat Prairie Valley on Tuesday to secure second place.”

The Lady Greyhounds (14-7, 8-2) trail first-place Saint Jo by a game, heading into the regular season finale.

Slidell started slow against Gold-Burg, but came alive in the second quarter with a 19-8 run. Slidell led 27-12 at the break.

The Lady Greyhounds put the game away with a 12-5 closing spurt.

Kylie Franklin scored eight points, and Kayler Talamantes seven.

SANTO 68, CHICO 16

Santo, ranked seventh in Class A, rolled past Chico Tuesday 68-16.

Santo opened the game on a 20-4 run and led 43-8 at halftime.

Chico looked to rebound Friday at home against Perrin-Whitt in its season finale.
