The Mogadore girls basketball team opened their season on Monday with a road victory over Windham.
The Wildcats used a big fourth quarter to close the door on the win, outscoring the Bombers 20-5, on their way to a 53-35 non-league victory.
Reigning Portage Trail Conference Player of the Year Brooklyn McIntyre led the way with 18 points, but the win included plenty of strong performances for Mogadore (1-0).
“Brook always performs for us offensively, but we got a very solid performances tonight by McKenna Whitehead, Jocelyn Lawrentz sand Ari Tompkins,” Mogadore head coach Jen Ritch said.
Whitehead finished the game in double figures with 12 points, but was also the main distributor with six assists.
Lawrentz neared a double-double with seven points and nine rebounds.
Ari Tompkins provided a “defensive and offensive spark” for the Cats and totaled six points and three steals.
“All three of them came in and provided the tough man-to-man defense we needed,” Ritch said.
Windham was led by Briah Daniel with 12 points and Mariah Woods finished with 11 points for the Bombers (0-1).
Mogadore led just 21-20 at halftime and the score was 32-30 going into the fourth quarter before the Wildcats opened the game wide open.
