The Sully Buttes Charger girls wasted no time in setting the tempo and rhythm of their game against Stanley County Thursday night, and pulled away with a 60-33 victory in Onida.
The Chargers led 18-6 after the first quarter, and 38 14 at the half. It seemed that Sully Buttes found the pace they liked, and kept it up, forcing the continuous clock in the second half to enact the mercy rule.
The Chargers-now 9-3- had four players in double figures; Lydia Hill with 17, Stevie Wittler with 14, Tailynne Bradford for 12, and Allyson Wittler finished with 11 points. Stanley County was led in scoring by Jordyn Sosa and Cadence Hand, both finishing with eight points. The young Lady Buffs fall to 2-9 on the season.
The Chargers have a week off before they start a rush of contests—with Hitchcock Tulare the next matchup January 27th. Stanley County gets back to the court with a Saturday home game against Herreid Selby Area.
