Baldwinsville's girls basketball team returned to action on Thursday night well-rested, and ready to build upon its 6-1 start.
The Bees did so in high style, ripping Auburn 67-35 at the Baker High School gym, a more lopsided result than the teams' first meeting on Dec. 14, which ended 66-42 in B'ville's favor.
Little had changed - except that the Bees were better on the defensive side. It bolted out to a 22-8 first-quarter lead and, with its man-to-man defense, kept forcing Maroons turnovers as the margin grew to 54-19 by the end of the third period.
Each of the 12 B'ville players that saw action got at least one field goal. Maggie Monnat, with 15 points, led the way as Liz Giromini picked up 11 points. Andrea Moore, Gabi Jordan and Claire Monnat earned six points apiece.
Now the competition toughens for the Bees, as it would host Corcoran Tuesday night and go to Rome Free Academy Friday night.
