GOODLAND, Kan. The McCook High girls will happily move from game one to game two following a 42-13 opener against Colby, Kan., Eagles late Thursday night.

Colby (2-0 record) connected on eight three-pointers while McCook went about six minutes before scoring its first points of the season in this Topside Tipoff Tournament first-round game.

The Bison (0-1) only allowed Colby to hit 15 of 55 shots overall. They also outrebounded the Eagles 31-21.

Sophomore Emma Kehler made a quick shot off the glas only to see Colby swish another three while taking a 19-6 halftime lead.

Senior McKenzie Smith and teammate Ashley Miller scored the first two baskets after halftime.

The Bison were only trailing 19-10 yet Colby went on a 14-1 run through that third period.

Freshman Peyton Doucet hit her only shot attempt to highlight the 12-2 Eagle fourth period.

McCook moves on into consolation play starting at 3 p.m. today. The Bison will certainly gain more game experience since they did not play last week due to winter weather.

McCOOK (13) Mackenzie Smith 7 points, Emma Kehler 2, Ashley Miller 2, Peyton Doucet 2. Three-pointers: None. Rebound leaders: Kehler 9, Tiara Matson 5, Jayceea Hanson 4.

COLBY (42) Jill Stephens 11 points, Brooklyn Jones 11, Hallie Vaughn 8, Brielle Bange 4, Kailey Shields 4, Mackenzie Dodson 2, Erika Daniels 2. Three-pointers: Jones 4, Shields 2, Dodson 1, Daniels 1. Rebound leaders: Kennedy Stanley 8, Stephens 4.
