AVON — Abby Liber kick-started the Avon offense Monday against Elyria, scoring six of the Eagles’ first 12 points.

Her teammates took over from there.

All 10 Avon players who took the court got in the scoring column as the Eagles soared to a 60-24 non-league win over Elyria in a rare weekday matinee.

“It’s important to get a quick basket from Abby to get her involved but the thing I was happiest about was the way the ball worked around,” Eagles coach Meghan Larrick said. “Everyone contributed, everybody scored. That’s something that’s huge for us.”

After playing five Southwestern Conference games in 10 days following getting the go-ahead to begin their season Dec. 14, Monday was the first chance the Eagles (4-2) had to play outside of the league.

“The grind and rigor of conference is so hard, it’s a tough game every day,” Larrick said. “So getting a game like this where we work on different things so we can continue to grow is really important.”

The Pioneers shot just 22 percent (9-for-41) from the floor as the Eagles held their third consecutive opponent to under 30 points.
