Garber girls utilized another balanced attack to run their record to 6-1 overall and 4-1 in the Tri Valley East.

The Dukes had twelve girls in the scoring column on their way to a 69-37 win over visiting Bridgeport.

The Dukes pressured the Bearcats with an aggressive style of defense that proved too much as they forced their conference foes to shoot just 14 of 75 from the field.

Kelsea Zimmerman and Molly Braun forced many Bearcat turnovers in addition to leading the Dukes in scoring with 14 each.

Sky Mathews had eleven, while Quintoya White chipped in 8 for Bridgeport.

Garber girls ran out to a quick half time lead of 38-17 over an overmatched Bridgeport team. They then kept the same pressure for the second half as they finished with a 68-37 win.

Coach Huiskens was able to use everyone on his bench with every girl scoring. "This was the last game before the holidays. We wanted to come into the break with a positive outcome and that is what we were able to accomplish here," said Coach Huiskens.

Garber is off until Jan. 4 when they travel to Frankenmuth for an always tough league game.

In the nightcap, the Garber Boys did not fair quite as well over a talented Bearcat team.

While the Dukes were able to run their offense and get high quality shots in the paint, the ball didn't seem to drop for them as Bridgeport pulled out to a 45-27 half time lead.

Bridgeport then started the second half by outscoring the Dukes 25-12 as the Bearcats finished off the Dukes for a 88-50 win.

Shane O'Mara led Garber with 13 points with Brett Eichhorn adding 12. The Bearcats were lead by Derrick Davis' 26 points with E.J. Brooks adding 20.

Garber resumes play Jan. 4 at Frankenmuth.
