Soroco girls basketball improve to 3-1 with resounding home victory

It was a dominating performance Tuesday night at home for the Soroco High School girls basketball team.

Playing at home for the first time this season, the Rams overpowered North Park, 70-30.

“I was really happy with the effort,” coach David Bruner said about his team. “They really played hard, and it’s fun to watch them.”

Soroco, 3-1, led 17-9 after the first quarter, then only built on the lead, padding it by 11 more points by halftime.

Jessica Rossi scored 21 points to lead the team. Jacey Schlegel had 16, Briana Peterson had 14 and DaKota Bruner scored eight.

The team also welcomed back Hayley Johnson, who missed the team’s first three games with an injury.

“We’re getting better,” David Bruner said. “We played a lot better on defense and we got some transition baskets out of our defense. That was good.”

The team now is off for more than a week, next taking the court Dec. 20 against Hayden.

“We’ll have seven practices before that, so we have a lot of work to do,” Bruner said.
