SCPA – A shutdown defense for the entire first half, helped the SCPA Lady Lions coast to a 50-32 win over the Spartans of St. Paul Academy on Thursday night in the Lions Den. A strong, active defense shut down and frustrated SPA throughout the first half while on the offensive end, Annika White and Meg Schulte provided the scoring that led to a 24 to 4 half time lead for the Lions.
