Riverside 90,

East Mills 36

The Riverside girls basketball team sprinted out to a 20-4 first quarter lead and never looked back in a 90-36 victory over East Mills last Tuesday.

The Wolverines (0-2) struggled against the quick and athletic Bulldogs shooting just 36.1 percent and turning the ball over 40 times.

"We played well in spurts but we had trouble handling their press,” said East Mills coach Brian Bertini. “They are a very athletic and quick team which makes it difficult for us without a lot of varsity experience in the guard court to be successful.”

Jensen Duysen led the Wolverines with 20 points and eight rebounds.

“Once we start putting more consistent minutes together, we’ll be successful,” said Bertini. “I can see the potential is there and the girls just need to continue to work together and have confidence in what they can do. I know they can."

Jessica Joy led Riverside with 26 points.
