Chargers' Girls in a Romp Over SWV, 69-31
It did not take long for the ACGC girls to take command over the Southwest Valley Timberwolves last night, as they scored twenty two first quarter points en rout to a 69-31 win. The 1-11 Timberwolves provided little competition for the Chargers, although it may have been good for the Chargers to have a "breather" game after some tough WCAC competition.
ACGC broke out to a 22-8 lead after the first quarter and never took its foot off the gas. By half time the Chargers' lead had swelled to 38-11.
Mercedez Richter led the first half scoring for the Chargers, putting up ten points which included two three pointers. Sophie Dorsey had eight first half points, while Reagan Carney had seven. All told ACGC connected on eight treys before the intermission.
"We played a great offensive game in which we made the most field goals overall and also the most threes for the season," ACGC coach Brad Baudler commented. The Chargers made eleven treys for the night.
A big third quarter in which the Chargers netted nineteen points increased the lead to twenty thirty four points at 57-23. Alaina Bunde's eight points led the Charger scoring in the quarter.
With non-starters playing the fourth quarter for ACGC, Presley Buttler came off the bench to score four points to lead the Charger scoring in the final frame.
The Chargers had a respectable shooting night, connecting on twenty seven of sixty one field goal tries for 44%. That included eleven out of twenty four three point tries--nearly 50%. At the same time, the Charger defense only allowed SWV thirteen field goals for the night.
Richter led the ACGC offense with 14 points, while Bunde scored 13, Carney came up with 12, and Dorsey added 10. Bunde's 11 rebounds gave her a double double for the night. It is her fifth of the season.
"I was happy with our intensity and thought we played great defense most of the game," Baudler said. "It was super nice to come out and play that way."
