McPherson’s eighth-grade A-girls continued on their basketball rampage Thursday with a 40-22 rout of Salina South.

The Bullpups, now 11-1, received 16 points from a white-hot Claire Yowell while eight Bullpups in all scored.

“We played very well in both games,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “In our first game with South we only won by two in the A-game. We have had very good practices leading up to this game. I just saw the improvement in our team in every practice and we carried it into the games.”

The B-team remained undefeated by storming to a 43-9 domination. Megan Eisenbarth led the Bullpups with 13 points. MMS is now 10-0.

The MMS B-team plays Saturday in a tournament at Salina and both teams are home Monday against Salina Lakewood.

MMS A (40) — Hein 2, Beam 2, Smith 2, Ellet 3, Eisenbarth 2, Hett 6, Hageman 7, Yowell 16.

MMS B (43) — Stout 2, Hageman 2, Beram 4, Jones 6, Smith 9, Burghart 7, Eisenbarth 13.
