In the Londonderry squad’s home opener, on Friday night, Dec. 19, against the Nashua South Purple Panthers, the Lancers came away with 67-49 victory for their second win of the season.

The Lady Lancers kept NSHS down to 10-points in each of the first thee quarters and only gave up eight in the final period, but the second half was riddled with fouls on both sides of the courts.
Londonderry had a 41-20 lead going into halftime and finished with 24-points in the second half, eight of those were on free-throws.
Eacrett, once again, led the team in scoring, getting a total of 18-points, with 15 of them coming in the first half.
