The Lake Fenton varsity girls basketball team is on a roll.
The Blue Devils earned impressive wins against Clio 62-26 and Fenton 63-30 in its two contests before Friday night’s battle with Owosso. So what did the girls do for an encore on Friday night? The Blue Devils won even more convincingly against the Lady Trojans earning an 80-40 victory at home.
The Blue Devils (12-5 overall and 6-2 in the Flint Metro League Stars Division) opened the game with a 12-2 run, eventually scoring 25 first-quarter points. Morgan Furey led the way with eight points during the period, as six players scored during the opening eight minutes. Lake Fenton led 25-14 after one period.
The Blue Devils blew the game open in the second quarter. Furey, Katelyn Siebert and Christina Lamb each scored five second-quarter points as Lake Fenton scored 19 points during the stanza. The defense held Owosso to seven points resulting in a 44-21 halftime lead.
Lake Fenton assured the victory with a 24-point third quarter. Aubrey Fray scored nine points in the third, leading the Blue Devils offense. In the fourth quarter, five different Lake Fenton players scored a single field goal each.
“We were lethargic early on defense and probably only played five to eight minutes of good defense, honestly,” Lake Fenton varsity girls basketball coach Brian VanBuren said. “But we did a nice job scoring today. Four kids in double-figure is good.
“I was happy to see us being more assertive on the offensive end, especially with Owosso putting up points in the first. We look like we can overcome a rough shooting day or a bad defensive start.”
Siebert led the Blue Devils with 18 points while Furey had 16 points. Fray netted 13 points while Lamb had 11 points. Kerrigan Howedeshell netted eight points while Sydney Hammis and Macy Phillips collected seven points each.
The 80 points scored was Lake Fenton’s most this season. The Blue Devils scored 73 in a 73-22 road victory against Owosso earlier this season.
Lake Fenton travels to Goodich for a key Flint Metro League Stars Division contest Tuesday.
“We have to get our heads right for next week now – big game on Tuesday,” VanBuren said.
