Both the ‘A’ teams for the McPherson Middle School 7th and 8th grade girls basketball teams scored wins on Monday in games with Salina Lakewood.

Here are brief post-game wrap ups, including individual scoring:

7TH GRADE JUNIOR LADY PUPS NOW 5-1

In the game on Monday with Salina Lakewood, the 7th grade Junior Lady Pups ‘A’ team scored their fifth win in six games with a 33-23 victory.

McPherson was led by Brooke Doile who not only poured in 20 points, but was a force in the paint as she also grabbed 20-plus rebounds.

There was no ‘B’ game.

Next up for the 7th grade Junior Lady Pups will be on Thursday, November 19 when they battle Newton Chisholm Middle School.

7TH GRADE ‘A’ TEAM JUNIOR LADY PUPS INDIVIDUAL SCORING: Brooke Doile 20; Maryn Sandbo 6; Jensyn Alexander 4; Addysen Patrick 3.

8TH GRADE JUNIOR LADY PUPS SOCRE 5-POINT WIN

The 8th grade Junior Lady Pups ‘A’ team also scored a victory on Monday over Salina Lakewood with a five-point, 28-23 win.

“This game was very up and down as we started to put things together later in the game,” explained Head Coach TJ Jackson during his post-game reflections. “The girls were very open to a couple of changes that affected who played where and in the beginning of the game it was a rough start, but they more than doubled their scoring effort from the first half. Defensively, we have quite a bit of work to do, but I know the ladies will come ready to get better later this week.”

Scoring was well balanced as seven Junior Lady Pups put points by their name in the scorebook, with Mallorie Cooper and Cora Pavlovich leading the way with nine and eight points respectively.

Next up for the 8th grade Junior Lady Pups will be on Thursday, November 19, when they tangle with Newton Chisholm Middle School.

8TH GRADE ‘A’ TEAM JUNIOR LADY PUPS INDIVIDUAL SCORING: Mallorie Cooper 9; Cora Pavlovich 8; Addie Harlin 3; Alivia Villalobos 2; Izabel Backhus 2; Reese Buchman 2; Josie Fitzmorris 2.
