The Catholic Central sr. girls basketball team beat a young Maranatha team 47-27 to move to 2-1 on the season. Ashley Gonzales led all scorers with 21 as she helped key a 13-0 CCH run top open the third quarter. "It was fun. Our team played well. Very proud of them." said Gonzales. "We're getting better and I can't wait to see how the season goes."
Maranatha, who was playing its first game of the season, got 14 points from grade 12 student-athlete Brooke Huisman. "I think it was a really good first game considering our team is very young." said Huisman, who also plays volleyball. "There's a lot of grade 9's and 10's but we're still a senior team. I'm really proud of how we played and I'm excited for future games."
The win helps the Comets keep pace with league-leading Leamington who have won their first three games including a 5-point win over CCH. They tip off Thursday at Academie Ste. Cecile while Maranatha is at Leamington October 10th.
