Bronson’s lead ballooned in the second quarter to as many as 18 and the Vikings girls ended up with a 44-24 victory Friday over St. Joseph Valley League foe Centreville.
The Bulldogs are 1-6 overall and 0-1 in league play, while Bronson improved to 4-2 overall and 1-0 in the SJV. Bronson jumped out to an 11-5 first-quarter lead and outscored Centreville 15-3 in the second frame to pull away.
Jenna Beeker led Centreville with seven points, Bailee May scored five and also had 12 rebounds and three steals, Mattie Kirby posted four points and Madison Hunter tallied three points and two steals. Faith Morell and Catherine Rigby each chipped in two points and Rudie Crawford finished with one.
“Before tonight’s game we talked about changes we want to make moving forward this season,” Centreville coach Jill Peterson said. “We scratched the surface of those changes tonight, but will put them in full swing in the coming week. I’m proud of how the girls fought tonight and continue to fight each game even when the score isn’t in our favor. The girls know that the vision we’ve talked about for this season won’t fully flourish until deeper into the season, and I’m excited for the results. It takes time to build a perfect foundation, but with a perfect foundation comes a strong, solid house. It just takes a little more time.”
