Astros cruise in girls' game
The Astros improved to 10-1 while Central dropped to 6-6. The loss ended a two-game win streak for the Little Green.
Central was led by Natasha Velez with seven points. Amanda Gaudreault added five.
Pinkerton coach Lani Buskey said Central tried to slow the Astros down. "It's what I would have done" said Buskey. "I told our girls we had to play Pinkerton ball."
Central trailed 22-13 entering the third quarter before whittling the lead to five. But the Astros posted another run to lead 41-21 by the end of the quarter.
"Pinkerton did a nice job with their pressure," said Central coach Mike Wenners.
