Once upon a time, the Hudson-Stow-Munroe Falls girls basketball game was a fierce rivalry.
Unfortunately for the Lady Explorers, it's pretty one-sided these days.
The Lady Bulldogs continued their mastery over Hudson with a lopsided 79-40 victory Dec. 14 at James G. Tyree Gymnasium.
With the win, the Lady Bulldogs improved to 3-1 overall and 3-1 in the Suburban League National Conference.
Stow (3-1, 3-1) outscored the Lady Explorers 20-11 in the second quarter to take a 35-22 advantage into the locker room and then completely dominated the third period.
When the dust settled, the Lady Bulldogs outscored Hudson 28-5 in the quarter to take a commanding 63-27 lead.
Stow took advantage of 30 turnovers by the Lady Explorers (2-4, 1-3).
Leading the Lady Bulldogs' stingy defense was Theresa Parr.
Stow's do-everything junior guard had 7 steals and had a hand on several more Hudson passes.
Parr also was a major presence on the offensive end.
Whether she was getting easy layups after getting steals or draining jumpers from all over the floor, Parr was just about everywhere on this night.
She finished with a team-high 18 points and dished out several assists as the Lady Bulldogs showed good ball movement throughout the evening.
Senior forward Lindsey Molnar came off the bench to score 14 points and sophomore forward Lizzy Stefanov and sophomore guard Emily Andrassy added 13 and 9 points, respectively, for Stow, which made 11-of-12 foul shots.
Sophomore guard Emma Messina, despite being in foul trouble most of the game, led the Lady Explorers with a game-high 19 points. She made five of Hudson's nine 3-pointers.
Ava Cristofoli added 10 points for the Lady Explorers, who made just a pair of two-point field goals and five free throws. No other Hudson player scored more than four points.
