The GHS girls basketball team topped Orofino 43-20 Thursday night, Jan. 18, in Grangeville. With 11 points apiece, Paige Lindsley, Makayla Roberts and Colby Canaday led the Bulldogs to a one-sided win over a Central Idaho League foe, keeping within striking distance of league-leading St. Maries.
Outscoring Orofino 8-3 during the second quarter -- with a run fueled by their defensive pressure -- GHS went on to lead by 10 during the third quarter and to more than double the Maniacs' output by the end. That their blowout point total came despite a rough shooting night had their coach, Michelle Barger, praising their defensive effort.
Next up, the Grangeville girls are scheduled to host Tri-Valley of Midvale at 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
