The Hannibal Lady Pirates JV team defeated Boonville JV 29-24 at Korf Gymnasium on Monday night. 

After failing to score a field goal in the first quarter, Hannibal fell behind 8-2 and was in need of a spark.

Freshman Peyton Utterback provided that, scoring six points in the second quarter as Hannibal surged to a 15-4 run to take a five-point lead into halftime.

Although the visiting Lady Pirates remained within striking distance in the second half, three home Lady Pirates —Abby Baumann, Claire Thomas and Emma Deien — scored in the final period to secure the victory for Hannibal.

Utterback and Thomas led Hannibal with eight points a piece. Morgan Wells scored five, while Baumann and Deien each finished with four points.

Hannibal faces Moberly at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
