A late surge by the Keller Lady Indians kept them undefeated in District 3-6A and handed the Weatherford Lady Kangaroos their first league loss Friday night at Weatherford High School.

The game was tied at 27 after three quarters, a nip-and-tuck affair. Then, Keller (20-5, 6-0) began to pull away. With a minute to play and down by five points, the Lady Roos (15-10, 5-1) had to start fouling and Keller made free throws.

"We rushed a little with five minutes left," Lady Roos coach Darryn Shearmire said.

Keller finished 21-for-24 at the free throw line and Weatherford was 3-for-6.

Vasha Moore led the Lady Roos with 14 points and Gracie Ferguson added 11.
