ROSALIA – The Flinthills High School girls’ basketball team came ready to play Tuesday night.
The Lady Mustangs stormed out of the gates with a 36-point barrage in the first quarter, rolling to a 58-12 victory over the Altoona-Midway Lady Jets.
Flinthills led 47-5 at halftime.
“The first half was rough,” stated AMHS head coach Lauren Lewallen matter-of-factly. “But to the girls’ credit, they came back in the second half, kept the point totals low, and competed.”
Natalie Davis again led the Lady Jets offensively, as she tallied six points and hauled down four rebounds.
“Natalie again came out and played hard for us,” Lewallen noted. “She attacked the basket and got some points for the team.”
Anna Pierce added three points, Michala Kinzle netted two and Ashleigh Baker had one point to round out the scoring for AMHS.
Kinzle, Baker and Jessica Williams each pulled down three rebounds for the visitors.
Flinthills was led by Ashley Melugin, who poured in 15 points, while Nyah Brown added 10 for the Lady Mustangs.
Altoona-Midway will close out its pre-Christmas portion of the schedule Friday, traveling to Chetopa.
