HUTCHINSON — The Inman girls had an easy go of it Friday night against Hutchinson Central Christian, steamrolling the Cougars 57-18.
The Teutons set the pace with a 15-3 run in the first quarter and went into the locker room at halftime with a 27-7 advantage.
Inman coach Jeff Friesen kept on the accelerator for one more quarter, as his girls put up a 21-4 third quarter on route to the non-league victory.
“We started a little slow and missed some good shots early, but we were able to get it going,” Friesen said. “Beth Doerksen hit a shot just a little inside of halfcourt at the buzzer at the half to give us some momentum that carried over into the third, where we seemed to hit just about everything.”
Inman’s Kaitlyn Goalden ledd all scorers with 19 points, while Doerksen added 11 for the Teutons, who had eight players score at least one bucket in the win.
Inman hosts Sedgwick Tuesday, in what Friesen expects to be a tough, physical game.
