Huge second half lifts Dexter over Portageville

DEXTER -- In a rematch that featured two highly state-ranked teams, a huge second half from the Dexter Lady Bearcats was once again what propelled them past the Portageville Lady Bulldogs in round two.

The Lady Bearcats methodically broke down defenses and ran the floor to score 57 second half points as they rolled by Portageville 85-55.
