Thursday night, the Lady Toppers competed in a conference game against Illini Bluffs. Illini Bluffs came out hot, but the Lady Toppers kept it close. At halftime, the Toppers were only down 8 points. During the second half, the refs weren’t letting anything go. Because of that, the Tigers just shot free throw after free throw until they were able to put the game away. Many of the fans weren’t enjoying the refs’ calls and in return, 2 fans were ejected from the game. The Tigers ended up winning 56-40 over the Lady Toppers. The Toppers record is now 12-11. Their next game is home against Tri-City on Thursday night.
