The Davie varsity girls basketball team is mired in a brutal stretch, and it was helpless against high-powered West Rowan on Dec. 21.

West (5-2) shot 57 percent for the game (38-66) as De’Mya Phifer (23) enjoyed her third 20-point game. Lauren Arnold (16) hit double figures for the seventh time. And Emma Clarke – the daughter of Elizabeth Greene Clarke, who was a standout for the 25-2 War Eagles of 1994-95, had 15.
Davie, which trailed by 30 at halftime, got 10 points from Kenadi Gentry, six from Malayka Rankin, five from London Dirks and four from Peyton Spaugh. Somer Johnson, Sydney Dirks and Keelyn Oakes had two each.
