It was a productive road trip for Central High as both the boys’ and girls’ squads cruised past host Geronimo on Tuesday.
The Bronchos won, 73-40, while the girls cruised to a 50-18 victory.
By halftime, Central High was already up 42-23, but just to be safe, they decided to make one more push in the third quarter.
“I had subbed quite a bit already in the second quarter,” Central High boys’ coach John Nease said. “I told the starters, ‘I’m going to give you most of the third quarter,’ and they came out of halftime and played hard and put the game away.”
By the end of the third quarter, the Bronchos had control, 58-26.
Senior Dallin Ferrin paced Central High (5-2) with 18 points, while junior Kevin Harris added 13 and junior John Repp had 10. Junior Kade Taylor recorded eight points, freshman John Rosenthal had seven, junior Zarek Hickman had six and sophomore Wade Farmer finished with five.
It was a ho-hum kind of dominant night for the Lady Bronchos, who never allowed more than seven points in a quarter, while going up 50-12 in the first three quarters.
“We played pretty good,” Central High girls’ coach Chad Weldon said. “It was nothing exciting, but we played good.”
Sophomore Faith Harris led the Lady Bronchos (6-1) with 18 points, while senior Lora-Lynn Loomis tallied 15. Senior Caitlyn White and five points, while senior Aleia Daniels, senior Lacie Phillips, and junior Chelsea Nunley had four points apiece and sophomore Briann Dougherty chipped in with two points.
