New Franklin junior Jasmyne Boggs finished the game with a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Lady Bulldogs past Cairo in CAC action Tuesday night in New Franklin by a score of 49-28.
The Lady Bulldogs, improving to 17-7 overall and 8-3 in the conference, matched Cairo with 10 points in the first quarter and then outscored the Bearcats 39-18 for the rest of the game to win by 21.
New Franklin coach Chris McGowan said his team had a pretty good size advantage in this game and were able to get some good looks in the lane.
“Sometimes we settled for jump shots and didn’t hit many of them, but the times we attacked the lane by pass or dribble we were pretty successful,” McGowan said. “Jasmyne had a big game inside for us, and she and Derian did a really nice job of offensive rebounding to give us some second chance points. We did a decent job of contesting shots defensively but struggled at times trailing through screens instead of getting to where we needed to be.”
Boggs also finished the game with three steals.
Madi Lyons added 10 points, seven assists, four steals and two rebounds while Aislinn Himmelberg had seven points, four rebounds and three steals, Derian Dodson with six points, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal, Aly Hundley with four points, five rebounds, four assists and one steal and Sara Montgomery with three rebounds and two assists.
The Lady Bulldogs also finished the game hitting 21 of 42 shots from the field for 50 percent and 7 of 11 from the foul line for 64 percent.
For Cairo, Alex Wehar had 11 points.
As for the New Franklin boys, they weren’t so fortunate while falling to Cairo 57-33.
The Bulldogs, dropping to 12-12 overall and 5-6 in the CAC, led Cairo 12-10 after first period’s end but was outscored 47-21 for the next-three quarters to suffer the loss.
New Franklin coach Jim Schlotzhauer said the boys did not play well on either end.
“We did not defend the basket well on defense and shot it very poorly on offense,” Schlotzhauer said. “We gave up too many layups to a good team and we had numerous open shots that we could not knock down.”
For New Franklin, who dropped to 12-12 overall and 5-6 in the conference, Tyler White tossed in 12 points. Dalton Welbern and Tyler Hull added six while Ryley Lyons had five, Tanner White two and Matt Anderton and Ronnie Perkins each with one.
