It happened again.
Just days after taking a 45-7 first-half lead against Lapeer en route to a 74-16 victory, the Lake Fenton varsity girls basketball team repeated the experience against Clio on Wednesday.
Lake Fenton outscored Clio 27-2 in the first quarter and cruised to a 53-16 road victory against the Lady Mustangs.
“We got out quick,” Lake Fenton varsity girls basketball coach Brian VanBuren said. “I thought that was important. We talked about the start only going one of two ways and we were able to begin how we wanted. And that was good to see.”
Lake Fenton (2-1 overall and 1-1 in the Flint Metro League Stars Division) scored the game’s first 13 points and always led by double-digits from that point. The Blue Devils took a 34-6 lead into halftime and then outscored Clio 19-10 in the second half as well. A good portion of the second half was played with the continuous clock mercy rule.
Balanced scoring has been key to this point of the season for Lake Fenton. Kerrigan Howdeshell led the Blue Devils with 11 points while Savannah Fellenbaum had 10 points. Aubrey Fray, Cola Sisk and Christina Lamb had six points each. The Blue Devils had all eight players score in their win against Lapeer.
“We had good balance,” VanBuren said. “Six of our eight scored six or more. There was a few times that the ball moved three, four, five times around to players. It didn’t finish with an assist every time, but the effort to make the extra pass was there.”
The Lake Fenton JV team also won 52-19.
