Elle Infalvi scored 17 points and Anna Sorine added 10 to lead Perry to a 43-34 conference win at Chagrin Falls on Saturday.
The Pirates, who won their seventh straight game, also turned in a strong performance on the defensive end to shut down the potent Tigers.
“We did a great job on the defensive end today,” Perry coach Roy Infalvi said. “We rebounded well, we took three charges and we dove on the floor after loose balls countless times. Our intensity was great today and our defense along with some timely scoring was key.”
The Pirates used a 15-4 third-quarter run to pull away from the Tigers after the two teams were deadlocked at halftime, 16-16.
Madyson Hacking contributed eight points in the win while Marcela Rodriguez and Gigi Vicini finished with six and two, respectively.
Perry improved to 11-1 overall and remains in first place of the Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division with a 6-0 mark.
“We had three great practices this week,” Coach Infalvi said. “I really challenged them and they responded. I love the way this team comes to work every day. They are unselfish and they do whatever it takes.”
Julia Santamaria led the Tigers with 10 points and 11 rebounds and Bella Dalessandro added nine. Lily Karyo finished with eight and Carolyn Bencko scored seven for Chagrin Falls, who dropped to 9-3, 3-2.
