AREA GIRLS BASKETBALL ACTION: Rockets vault to first place with victory

OSKALOOSA — Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont used a balanced scoring attack to topple Clarke 41-29 Friday, giving the Rockets possession of first place in the South Central Conference.

“We got a lot of good looks on the backside after we reversed the ball two or three times,” Rocket coach Tony Fenton said. “We had a lot of nice cuts and feeds.”

Emma Tanner paced E-B-F with nine points and Tasha Alexander and Jarrah Jensen each added eight. Makenzie Jensen scored seven and Shunyl Busch chipped in six.

Jarrah and Makenzie Jensen were relentless on the glass, grabbing 10 rebounds each.

“Most of them were on the defensive end,” Fenton said. “After the first half, we pretty much controlled the boards.”

Alexander dished out a team-best three assists and compiled a team-high five steals.
