Defeating their third state-ranked opponent in the past two weeks, the Aledo Ladycats, paced by a double double from sophomore guard Taylor Morgan, outlasted the Class 4A No. 10 Stephenville Honeybees, 50-39, Tuesday night at Aledo.

The win raises the Ladycats’ record to 9-2, while the ‘Bees drop to 4-1. The Ladycats will continue non-district play at the Granbury tournament.

The win was Aledo’s third over a ranked opponent. The Ladycats defeated 4A No. 3 Godley two weeks ago, and a week later downed 3A No. 9 Brock.

Morgan led all scorers with 18 points while adding 10 rebounds.
