Fast break leads SHSS girls past Rossland

SHSS junior and grade 8 girls basketball teams took on Rossland in the Golden City.

Rebecca Liszt of the SHSS Rockers tries to power up to the basket during Thursday's game in Rossland.

The Stanley Humphries Secondary Rockers used a strong fast break and solid defence to crush the Rossland Royals 61-23 in junior girls basketball action on Thursday in Rossland.

Rachael teBulte led all scorers with 12 points, while Svetlana Hadikin and Angela Soukeroff added eight each.

“We were able to build a nice lead early using some nice long passes which led to easy basketball for our guards,” said coach Kim Matson. “Rossland’s 2-3 zone gave us some problems early, but after some adjustments we were able to work the ball around and get some great shots.”

In grade 8 action, the Rossland girls beat SHSS 32-19. Rossland used a strong zone defence to stymie the SH shooters.

Ashley Fidgettt led the Bulldogs with seven points, while Cameran Miller and Gabrielle Hanvold added four each.

“We had a lot of turnovers,” said coach Craig Lindsay. “Rossland put good pressure on our guards. It didn’t help that we had a short bench, but then again, so did Rossland, so that’s no excuse. On a positive note, we shot the ball much better than last week and made some very good passing plays.”
