SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Taylor Sisk scored 21 points in the second half and added nine rebounds to pace Frankfort during the Falcons’ win over Bishop Walsh in AMAC girls basketball.

While Sisk did most of her work in the second half, Mikala Miller did all of hers early by scoring all 15 of her points in the first quarter. That was also the vast majority of the Falcons’ offense in the opening period as Frankfort led 19-3 going into the second quarter.

Maddie Pfaff gave 13 points, five rebounds and five assists to the winning cause, and Cassidy Cosner had 11 points to go with five rebounds.

Frankfort continued to create space in the second quarter and led 27-10 at halftime, before outscoring the Spartans 40-3 in the second half.
