Team Score

The Barlow girls basketball team put together a big second half to turn away Centennial 47-34 on Friday night.

Leading by three at the break, the Bruins broke the game open in the third quarter with point guard Caitlyn Pemberton went coast-to-coast for layups twice. She then teamed up with Sarah Meyer to trap Centennial in the corner of the court, forcing a pair of turnovers that led to two more easy baskets.

Barlow took a 38-26 lead into the fourth quarter and was never threatened down the stretch.

The teams traded the lead five times in the first half.

The Bruins (10-9) host Clackamas on Tuesday, while Centennial (2-16) plays at Reynolds. Barlow maintains its two-game lead over Gresham in the battle for the league's final guaranteed playoff spot. Those rivals meet next Friday at Barlow.
