SALINA — Two more games, two more wins Saturday for the McPherson eighth-grade B-girls.

The Bullpups, competing in the Salina Jamboree, outlasted host Lakewood 27-25 and then breezed by Great Bend, 33-15.

Against Lakewood, Meghan Smith led a balanced scoring attack with eight points. Claire Yowell fired in 12 and Ashlie Stout 10 in the victory over Great Bend.

“The ladies played very well and really got after it and they continue to improve,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “Our defensive pressure really caused a problem against both teams we played.”

The B-team is still perfect on the season at 13-0. It hosts Salina Lakewood on Monday along with the A-team.

MMS (27) — Spaich 2, Dossett 2, Stout 4, Burghart 5, Jones 6, Smith 8.

MMS (33) — Jones 2, Smith 9, Stout 10, Yowell 12.
