Centennial stops Scots cold in opener
Defense was the name of the game Friday night, as the Centennial girls opened league play with a resounding 53-20 win over David Douglas. The Scots were held to just seven points and two baskets in the first two and a half quarters.
Everything just worked on defense, Centennial senior forward Chelsey Miller said. That gave us all the momentum and we got rolling.
The Scots did make their share of mistakes, but Centennial did everything right.
If a David Douglas shooter squared up for an outside shot, there was always an Eagle in her face to challenge the attempt. When the Scots kicked the ball down low, two or three Centennial players swarmed the area.
At the halfway point of the third quarter, Centennial had an overwhelming 37-7 lead.
Centennial relied on a balanced scoring attack as four players finished with at least nine points. Miller and sophomore point guard Melissa Dailey each had 12 points, while senior wing Angie Sharma and sophomore guard Megan Dailey each scored nine.
