Prep girls basketball: Superior Central tops Brimley

EBEN – Outscoring Brimley 22-8 in the second quarter, the Superior Central High School girls basketball team went on to post a 55-49 non-conference win over the visiting Bays Saturday.

“We played (Friday night) and we were without one of our starters – Brianna Emard – with a sore knee,” SC coach Greg Trowbridge said.

“We started out slow and had to figure out how to play (Brimley’s) big girl, 6-3 Hana Vesela of the Czech Republic.”

He said Brooke Pasanen sank three 3-pointers in the second quarter surge, Teslyn Tyner one and Vanessa Freberg knocked down 4-of-4 free throws.

The Class D No. 3-ranked Cougars (10-1) took a 32-25 halftime lead and managed to hold off the No. 4-ranked Bays (7-2) the rest of the way.

Pasanen and Freberg paced SC offensively with 19 points apiece. They also combined for 21 boards – with Freberg snaring 11 – and collected five assists each.

Teammate Tyner chipped in 10 points.

For Brimley, Vesela finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Kerri Chartland contributed 11 markers.

Brimley won the jayvee game, 61-25.
