The Kincardine District Secondary School senior girls basketball team put a royal beating on Saugeen District last week.

The Knights amassed an incredible 76 points in Wednesday afternoon’s affair, which they won by more than 50 points.

It was 34-10 for Kincardine at the half, and it ended a lopsided 76-24.

The score actually could have been worse.

Saugeen came out strong and briefly held a lead. SDSS was hitting shots early, before Kincardine went on an 11-point run late in the first quarter.

They took a 16-8 lead to the first break.

The Knights attack was merciless, creating numerous turnovers on the Royals side of the court. A Royals time-out failed to calm things down, as KDSS went on another large run to firmly grasp control of the game.

Kincardine’s Kait McDonnel led KDSS scorers with 12 points, all of them in the second half. Taylor Schmidt had nine points in the first half and Hannah Brindley chipped in with six. Brindley finished the game with 10.

Liz Wood of the Royals scored a game high 14 points.

The Knights were in action Monday afternoon in Hanover. Only two more dates remain on the Bluewater Athletic Association (BAA) season.

Today (Wednesday), KDSS will host Sacred Heart before wrapping up the regular season on the road against Walkerton District Secondary School next week.
