The Boonville girls sixth grade basketball team advanced to the championship in the Bunceton 5th-6th Grade Tournament last night by beating the Otterville Lady Eagles by a score of 22-19.
Jalyn Schnetzler led the scoring attack in the game for Boonville with nine points while Katie Cooper added six, Jacey Fenton three and Kennedy Walker and Lauren Luscombe each with two.
Boonville coach Brett Cooper said the girls had to fight hard in the fourth quarter against a very “scrappy” Otterville team to retake the lead in order to advance to the final round. “We got some very good play from several of our girls who came through at clutch times to help us win this game,” Cooper said. “We started out slow but did what we had to do to pull out this win.”
