Buffaloes girls basketball drops 23-53 contest to Cedar Valley

After a lopsided match, during which Tooele High scored only eight points in the first half, the Buffaloes girls basketball team lost 23-53 to the Cedar Valley Aviators last Thursday.

Tooele was only able to muster four points in each of the first two quarters, which was matched by 25 posted by the Aviators. After taking a 25-8 lead into the half, Cedar Valley never looked back for the rest of the game.

A 19-point third quarter propelled Cedar Valley to a 44-15 lead, as the Buffaloes recorded a mere seven points over the same time span. 

The last period of the game proved to be low scoring, which benefited the visitors and sealed Tooele’s defeat. As the final buzzer sounded, Cedar Valley walked away with a 53-23 victory and handed the Buffaloes their seventh loss of the season.

Aviators players Breeah Jones and Breeann Turner carried the scoring for Cedar Valley, as the duo recorded a combined 25 points in the game. Tooele junior Josie Kennedy led in scoring for the Buffaloes, putting up eight of the team’s 23 points.

Ultimately,  Cedar Valley’s rebounds and Tooele’s squandered free-throw chances played into the outcome of the game. The Aviators pulled down 35 rebounds through four quarters and the Buffaloes went 7-18 behind the charity stripe.

The loss brings the Buffaloes’ record to 2-7 overall and 0-2 in their region. Next up for Tooele is a cross-town road matchup against the Stansbury Stallions, whose record sits at 4-8. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. at Stansbury High School.
