CRESAPTOWN — Karly Hipsley accounted for almost 60 percent of Calvary’s offense by scoring 28 points and leading the Eagles over Broadfording in their Mason-Dixon Christian Conference opener.
Hipsley dropped 11 baskets on Broadfording, and added a 6 for 11 night at the four line . She also posted a team-high 16 rebounds, while freshman Brooke Ricker added nine rebounds to go with seven points. Payton Emerick had six assists, four points and three blocked shots.
Calvary swarmed Broadfording on defense, allowing four points in the first half and nine by halftime. The Eagles lead 25-9 at the midway point and 37-14 after three quarters.
Broadfording was led by Cheska Knoble’s 14-point output.
“We weren’t moving the ball very well and looked sloppy on offense at times, but we played really good defense to make up for that. We are still trying to get the offense flowing and catch up to our defense,” said Calvary head coach Rusty Kitzmiller.
The Eagles (1-1, 1-0 MDCC) host New Life on Tuesday.
