    A 14-3 Essex first quarter lead was too big a hole for the Fremont-Mills girls to dig out of.

    “We go on that run and I’ll tell you what, the kids had real poise and really took good care of the basketball in that fourth quarter,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte. “We knocked down free throws when we needed them and Andrew Blum had a whale of a ball game in the fourth.”
