Pressuring the Highmore Harrold Pirates into turnovers, and fast break scoring was the winning ticket for the Sully Buttes Charger girls Friday night, as they downed the Pirates 65-28. The Chargers had numerous steals, and forced Highmore Harrold into turning the ball over at midcourt, and finished with breakaway baskets.
Leading the way was point guard Stevie Wittler, who dominated at the point, and Lydia Hill, who controlled the low post position for the 5-0 Chargers. Each player finished with 18 points.
The game was 35-9 at the half, and the Chargers kept the momentum turning their way, as the continuous clock was enforced in the third quarter.
Counting Friday, the Chargers girls play five games in eight days—ending January 13th against Timber Lake.
The 1-4 Pirates have to regroup quickly as well, with a Monday make-up game against James Valley Christian.
