With eight players earning score book ink during the first quarter alone, the Centauri Lady Falcons flew out to a 20-3 lead through one eight-minute quarter Tuesday at Bayfield en route to 72-9 blowout win.

Senior Madison Mead netted the Lady Wolverines’ first basket and junior Renae Foutz made one of two free throws during the first frame. However, Centauri junior Braelyn Tucker converted a feed from senior Saige Hostetter with 2:11 left, increasing the guests’ lead to 13-3.

Centauri junior reserve Emily Tibbitts closed out the quarter sinking three of four free throws. Two of those attempts resulted from a technical foul assessed against Bayfield for not entering substitute Lily Muir into the official score book.

Centauri senior post Lacey Johnson then took over the paint during the second quarter, scoring six of the Falcons’ 20 points. Centauri’s lead swelled to 40-7 at halftime.

All told, Johnson finished with a game-high 13 points. Junior Jocelyn Jarvies also reached double figures with 10 points. The Lady Falcons improved to 11-5 overall, 5-3 3A/4A Intermountain League play.

For Bayfield, Foutz ended up with three points while Mead, senior Genesis Barrera and freshman Vivien Clance each netted two.

Bayfield (3-12, 0-8 in league play) will resume action Friday at Pagosa Springs.
