Comets win second straight to kick off season

The BFA-St. Albans girls basketball team used a solid second half to come away with a good win at Spaulding on Monday.

After only leading by four at the half, the Comets outscored the Crimson Tide 35-20 in the second half to come away with the 61-42 win.

Caitlyn Dasaro led the way with 15 points, while Pippa Kittell added 11 and Mackenzie Moore had 10. Maren McGinn and Iris Burns each chipped in eight points.

“Our scoring was balanced this game unlike the last one with many girls scoring important baskets,” said BFA coach Paul LaFountain. “Our defense in the halfcourt was still solid, as was our rebounding for the most part.

“I did think overall, we struggled to get back on defense, especially on free throws, which led to 25 to 30 percent of their points.”

It was another solid outing to start the season after the Comets came away with an impressive victory at Rice on Friday during their opener.

They will have a tough test on Thursday when they round out their three-game road trip to start the season traveling to CVU.

“We need to continue to improve and take care of the ball heading into Thursday,” said LaFountain. “It will be a very nice test to see where we are at as a program.”
