GODDARD — McPherson’s eighth-grade A-girls held off Goddard 34-32 Tuesday to open their basketball season on a successful note.

Andrea Sweat topped the MMS scoring with 14 points and was augmented by Cassie Cooks with 10.

“This was our first game and the girls competed very hard and our effort was very good,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “We have a lot to work on, but it was nice to see that we competed and that's where it starts. This was a good win against a very good team.”

The B-team also had a close game, holding off Goddard for a 25-22 victory as Kaliah Tice tallied 11 points.

The Bullpups jump right back into action Thursday by hosting Maize South. Action begins at 5 p.m. at the middle school.

MMS A (34) — Strathman 2, Schieferecke 8, Cooks 10, Sweat 14.

MMS B (25) — Johnson 2, Pham 5, Newboles 7, Tice 11.
