Six 3-pointers help lead varsity
girls to victory over Port Huron
by RICK DESOTELLJunior point guard Lindsey Hernden had a career night, finishing with 33 points including six 3-pointers to lead the Romeo High girls' varsity basketball team to a convincing 61-38 MAC crossover win over Port Huron High Friday night in Port Huron.

Even though Hernden finished with 33 points and six 3-pointers, which are both new school records, no one can accuse her of being selfish; she took just 16 shots and had five assists.
"She was so efficient from the floor she shot 75 percent,'' said her mother and head Coach Connie Hernden, who knows what it's like to get hot shooting a basketball, being a pretty good shooter herself. "It was one of those games where everything went in and the rim was looking so big to her. I've seen girls score that many points before, but they have had to shoot it between 20 and 30 times to get it done.''
The Lady Bulldogs (2-0) were never really threatened, leading 15-5 after one quarter of play, 29-16 at the half and 48-28 after three quarters.
Senior center Lauren Bright had another fine night, finishing with 12 points and four rebounds for Romeo.
Junior forward Jodie Bosheers chipped in with six points, two rebounds, a steal and an assist; senior guard Andrea Madden was next with four points, four steals and two assists, Chelsea Malburg and Kylie Resner had two points and four rebounds each and Kayla Noch finished with two points, one rebound and had one assist to round out the scoring.
"Nice first road win of the season,'' added Hernden. "We were able to get the whole squad quality minutes, and we were able to work on executing some of our offensive and defensive strategies during the game. We are still turning the ball over too much, we will need to clean that up once we start playing in our league. Individually I thought Jodie (Bosheers) had a great game on both ends of the court. She looked more comfortable on the offensive end and that's a good sign, as we will need her scoring during the season. I also thought that Kylie Resner came in and gave us some really good quality minutes when Lauren got in foul trouble early and she came in and provided some good rebounding and defense."
The Lady Bulldogs' next game is this Friday at Marian.
