Lady Rams Blast Timpson 54-30

The Joaquin Lady Rams took advantage of the opportunity to shine in front of the home crowd again, jumping out to a 19-5 lead in the first quarter, then cruising to a 54-30 win. That wraps up round one of District 22AA play, and puts the Lady Rams all alone in second place at 4-1, one game back of Tenaha, who sits at 5-0.
