'Roaders black out Warriors

February 17, 2003|by CURT HORNBECKER / Staff Correspondent

BOONSBORO - Brunswick girls basketball coach Bill Martin is just happy Boonsboro didn't shoot the lights out Friday night.

Instead, the Warriors shot as though the lights were out, hitting just 15.5 percent of their field goal attempts in a 51-29 Monocacy Valley Athletic League thrashing.

"If Boonsboro had had a good night shooting, we might have been in trouble," said Martin. "Lucky for us they didn't hit the good looks they got."

The Railroaders got out of the blocks quickly, racing to a 14-3 lead, and taking a 19-4 advantage into the second period. Boonsboro turnovers and a huge Brunswick advantage off the glass allowed the Railroaders to take 23 field goal attempts to just eight for the Warriors.


"They're just strong and physical inside," said Boonsboro coach Bernie Semler. "They do a good job using their bodies. They beat us up real well in the first half."

Kacie Escamilla had a field day inside, scoring 14 of her game high 16 points in the first half. And when Escamilla left the game early in the fourth period, Leah McCallum took over with seven of her 15 points coming in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, Boonsboro couldn't get anything going offensively against the Railroaders' changing defenses, failing to score more than three straight points throughout the entire first half.
