FRANKLIN — With its most commanding game of the season, a 64-17 victory over Franklin on Tuesday night, the Newfound Girls Basketball team has a chance to be the only DIII girls team to complete a perfect regular season when they host 6-10 Somersworth in a game scheduled for 6:30 on Feb. 16
The Bears didn't leave room for any doubt in the gymnasium on Tuesday night, as they shot out with a 25-2 lead by the end of the first quarter. Scoring was evenly distributed for Newfound, with three players scoring in the double digits, including one who was filling an unusually prominent role for the team.
"I am proud of the girls for filling a key role this game. Savanna Bony was unable to play due to a stomach bug. Madi Dalphonse who is a swing player stepped into the line up and did a great job. The rest of the starters chipped in and picked up the extra," said Coach Karri Peterson.
Dalphonse scored 13 points for Newfound, as did Amanda Johnston, who also recorded 11 rebounds. Ashlee Dukette scored 12, collected 20 rebounds and 8 steals. Leak Franklin scored 8 points and Gracie Schilling scored 7.
