The Arlington girls basketball team welcomed the Shorewood Thunderbirds to their home floor on Jan. 31.

Early on, the Eagles and the Thunderbirds battled back and forth as they found themselves at 6-6 halfway through the first quarter. Arlington began to force turnovers to finish out the quarter, and had a 7-0 run to end the quarter up 13-6.

Through the second quarter the Eagles continued to keep the defensive pressure as they totaled nine steals. With a strong defensive effort, the offense began to follow as the Eagles doubled Shorewood's score. Arlington entered halftime ahead by a score of 25-12.

In the second half the Eagles continued to build on their momentum as they began to run away with the game. After outscoring the Thunderbirds 17-2 in the third quarter, the Eagles coasted to a 52-19 victory.

"It's late in the season, we are battling for a playoff spot and defense is what makes the difference. We played really well tonight and we have just got to keep doing it the rest of the way," said Arlington Head Coach Joe Marsh.
