Lady Bears win
The Brewster Lady Bears took an early 19-point 20-1 lead over Bridgeport in the opening quarter of their second-round loser-out game last Thursday, Feb. 13. The early point spread left the Fillies in a hole that they were unable to fill as Brewster added three more double-digit quarters while Bridgeport barely made double digits in the scoreboard by halftime.
Despite a trio of three-point baskets by Fillies guard Karla Torres, one at the halftime buzzer, the Lady Bears, behind the scoring of Sammi Emigh and Kelsey Ochoa, each with 13 points, extended their lead down to the final buzzer. Michaun Kelpman and Anah Wulf also scored in double digits with 10 points each.
The loss ended the Fillies’ post-season run while Brewster advanced to the semifinal game at Liberty Bell on Saturday, Feb. 15. The Lady Bears won that game, 60-53, and will be Waterville-Mansfield at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the Chelan Community Gym.
