SMITHSBURG - Smithsburg, using a stifling defense, doubled up Williamsport Friday night, beating the Wildcats, 60-30, in a high school girls' basketball game.
Sophomores Carrie Brennan and Rachel Bachtell led the assault. Brennan scored 16 points and Bachtell added 12.
The game opened with both teams trading baskets for the first three minutes. But Smithsburg (10-6 overall, 8-6 MVAL) turned up the defensive pressure and ended the quarter with an 8-0 run, giving them a 14-6 lead. Bachtell scored eight of her 12 points in the opening period.
Tracy Leather opened the scoring in the second quarter as her jumper, followed by Alexis Nogle's 10-footer, extended the lead to 18-6.
