Fillmore banked in a pair of three-pointers and converted a three-point play down the stretch to beat Dos Pueblos 47-44 on the last day of the Fillmore Girls Basketball Tournament on Saturday
Ashley Gerken scored 15 points and Ava Sommer added 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Chargers (6-2). Gerken was named to the all-tournament team.
“We were playing man-to-man defense for the first half. However, we got into foul trouble and had to resort to a zone defense,” DP coach Phil Sherman said. “Playing without Mikayla Butzke again really limited our aggressiveness on defense as Fillmore’s post took advantages of size mismatches.”
The Chargers got off to a great start, taking a 19-6 lead in the first quarter.
“We looked really good in the first quarter. If we can sustain that type of pace and scoring, we will do well.” said Sherman.
DP plays in the Nordhoff Tournament this week.
