After the starters opened the game with a 30-5 run, the rest of the Shields Valley Rebels got in on the fun and everyone contributed to the girls basketball team’s impressive 65-17 win on the road against Sheridan on Saturday.

“Everyone did a lot of nice things offensively and defensively,” said head coach Kenzie Scofield. “The girls played well together, and had some beautiful passes. Everyone scored, which is awesome. We also shot the ball well at 43-percent from the field.”

That good shooting started with 30 points in the first quarter. Kayla Gagen scored 10 of her 12 points in the game during the opening eight minutes, and Kylie Kerkaert scored all eight of her points during the first. Brook Russell also had a great start, scoring six first-quarter points.

Lauren Flatt, Erica Doolittle and Trinity Boyd got in on the action in the second quarter. Flatt made one of her two 3-pointers in the game, and Doolittle scored all four of her points in the second quarter.

Flatt also had four steals to go along with her eight points in the game. Marissa Marshall got into the game with three assists. Marshall also scored eight points, six of which came in the fourth quarter.

Molly Engle scored six points, but it was her work on the glass with 12 rebounds that made the biggest difference. Engle also had five steals to turn in a solid all-around game.

Boyd finished with four points, Logan Stafford added three points, Jen Fairchild scored two, as did Karlee Worthington.

“I’m very happy with how we are playing right now,” said Scofield. “We continue to get better every game.”

Following a fun win in Sheridan is a tough week for the Rebels. Although it is a non-district game, Shields Valley plays Class B’s Townsend at home on Thursday, then the Rebels will travel to one of the top team’s in their district, Ennis, on Friday.
