Charles Henderson got on the board early behind baskets from Tajianah Brundidge and Maori Davenport on their way to a 4-0 lead to start the game.

Charles Henderson led by as many as six in the first quarter and finished the first eight minutes up 15-7 on the Jaguars.

The hot shooting continued into the third quarter as the Trojans opened up the second half on a 9-4 run, including two 3-pointers, quickly extending their lead to 30-14.

The Jaguars never again got within single digits of the lead Tuesday night, and Charles Henderson regularly lead by 14, 16 and 17 points throughout the fourth quarter.

Jasonie Guice far and away lead Barbour County in scoring, putting up 14 of her team’s 31 points.

Kyra Scott led the Trojans with 12 points.
