Centreville girls basketball completed the season sweep of Marcellus with Friday’s 40-26 road win. The Bulldogs were able to build up a nine-point lead by halftime, which kept them ahead against a competitive Wildcat squad.
“Tonight we shot well from the line (10-13) and our bench was ultra engaged, but we have to take better care of the ball on offense and execute on the defensive end of the court through the rebound,” said Centreville head coach Jill Peterson.
The win puts the Bulldogs at 15-1 overall and 12-1 in Southwest 10 play, keeping the top spot ahead of White Pigeon (11-3) and Bloomingdale (10-3). Centreville plays host to Decatur on Tuesday.
Marcellus drops to 7-9 and 4-9 in league play. The Wildcats travel to Hartford Tuesday.
