Eastern’s Lady Eagles opened the season with a home win over a strong Mercy squad.
The team overcame a sluggish start with a strong second quarter and opened the game up in the 4th quarter to beat one of Louisville’s top teams.
Mikayla Kinnard led the team in scoring with 19 points. Breanna Anthony dished out 6 assists and Devin Beach led the way with 10 rebounds.
