Berryville coach Daniel Cornelison says the Lady Bobcats are a better basketball team when Lilli Compton is shooting well.

Based on that, the Lady Bobcats were a pretty good team Friday, Jan. 17, in Springdale.

Compton, Berryville’s junior point guard, made six three-pointers and scored 22 points as the Lady Bobcats ran away from Shiloh Christian for a 49-23 victory.

“She shot the ball really well,” Cornelison said of Compton. “We just stuck with the game plan and kind of built the lead. We definitely just grinded out a win on the road. We’ll take it.”

Shiloh Christian made just three shots from the field as Berryville took a 23-9 halftime lead.
