Overcoming an uncharacteristically sluggish start, the West Las Vegas Lady Dons cranked up the defensive heat Wednesday night in a 35-24 win over host Pojoaque Valley in the third-place game of the Ben Lujan Invitational.
It was a significant victory for West (8-1) in that it came against a respected District 2-3A rival and defending state champion playing at home.
From the opening tip Wednesday, defense dictated the contest. Pojoaque was a little bit stingier in controlling a 10-2 first period.
