Olivia Schulz scored 16 points to lead Warhill to a 42-30 home victory against Colonial Heights on Monday.
Warhill did all of its damage in the first quarter from inside the 3-point line with the Lions attacking the basket early and often.
With an aggressive gameplan in place, the Lions were able to get to the free-throw line eight times in the first quarter.
The Warhill offense did not generate as many scoring opportunities in the second quarter due to turnover problems, but the Lions were more efficient with the shots that were taken.
Warhill went 5-of-10 from the floor in the second quarter, giving the Lions a comfortable 27-11 halftime advantage.
A strong third quarter from Schulz, in which she scored six of her 16 points, helped Warhill hold Colonial Heights at bay during their best quarter of the game.
While the Lions were outscored in the fourth quarter, Warhill had enough of a lead heading into the final stanza to secure the victory.
Warhill (4-1) has won back-to-back games and will face a quick turnaround as the Lions travel to Poquoson on Tuesday.
