Soroco girls pick up road win

Soroco High School Rams

— The Soroco girls weren’t exactly sharp Friday, but they were plenty effective enough to win another league game. The Rams beat Plateau Valley 66-37 crawling one step closer to locking up a No. 2 seed in the Class 2A District 5 tournament.

Coach David Bruner said the team didn’t shoot particularly well but made up for that on defense. It led only 29-20 at the end of the first half, then built on that lead in the second.

“We played a lot better defense in the second half,” Bruner said. “Definitely, I was pleased, but we got into a little bit of foul trouble, too.”

Plateau Valley scored only five points in the third quarter as the Rams pulled away.

Mattie Rossi and Morgan George each scored 14, while Kayla Wille had 13.

Soroco, 14-2 overall and 7-1 in the league, next plays Saturday on the road at Lake County.
