Wildcats win season opener
By Jarann Johnson
Center-Stanton didn’t get the start they wanted to the year. They were holding a one-point lead heading into the second quarter. But an offensive explosion from Ashley Frank led the way to a 48-25 away win over New Salem-Almont.
Frank and the Wildcats were leading 10-9 at the end of the first quarter. But Frank and her teammates weren’t happy with the lead. New Salem-Almont won five games last season and a narrow lead over a weaker team
Frank made two 3-pointers and an inside basket putting Center-Stanton up 20-9. From there Center-Stanton took control of the game, grabbing a 29-13 halftime lead. Center-Stanton’s second quarter defensive effort was impressive, they only allowed New Salem-Almont to score four points during the period.
