Bees move to 6-0 with win over Grizz; Dec. 6 girls basketball roundup

At Skyline, a 21-point third quarter helped send the Bonneville High School girls basketball team past Skyline for a 58-30 nonconference win to move the Bees to 6-0.

The Bees led 26-13 at halftime and outscored the Grizz 21-10 in the third quarter. That same quarter, Skyline’s Erin Jenkins (seven points) went down with a lower back injury and did not return to the game.

“She kinda went up to block a shot and came down and landed weird,” Skyline coach Ty Keck said. “We don’t really know anything at this point. That took the wind out of our sails.”

Sadie Lott had a game-high 16 points to lead Bonneville, which hosts District 93 rival Hillcrest on Friday.

Brittney Dennert had eight points to lead Skyline (1-6), which plays Friday at Pocatello.
