6A GIRLS BASKETBALL
Mount Hood Conference
PORTLAND Gresham couldn't be stopped in the first quarter Friday night and ran away with a 76-48 girls basketball win at David Douglas.
Gophers' point guard Kacy Childress knocked down five buckets in the first quarter, and teammate Annaka Button chased down a loose ball near the sideline and beat the buzzer with a 12-footer off the glass for a 26-8 lead that had Gresham on pace to break the century mark.
Gresham maintained a 20-point gap most of the way and went on to a season-high in points. Childress led the charge with 22, and the Gophers put 12 players into the scorebook.
David Douglas won the boys game 83-31 earlier in the evening.
