Comets top Eagles in MWL action

EAGLE POINT — Crater’s pattern of playing a strong third quarter continued in a 50-30 Midwestern League girls basketball victory over Eagle Point on Tuesday.

The Comets (15-1, 5-0 MWL) led 20-17 at halftime, then went on an 18-7 run in the third quarter to take command.

Courtney Setzer scored eight of her team-high 17 points and Bailey Bascom tossed in all nine of her points in the third quarter for the Comets.

“We’ve been a good third-quarter team,” Crater coach David Heard said. “I really can’t figure it out.”

“We started getting the ball in the middle of the zone to get Courtney some easy shots and did a better job passing the ball,” added Heard about the Comets’ second-half performance.

Setzer, who shot 7-for-9 from the field, also had nine rebounds and four steals and Destiny Fahndrich provided eight rebounds, seven points and four assists.

Heard had praise for the defensive effort of Kes Noles on Eagle Point’s leading scorer Sydney May, who finished with 11 points.

The Comets outrebounded the Eagles (8-6, 0-4), 32-23, and forced 22 turnovers.
