WATFORD CITY - Four members of the Watford City girls basketball team scored in double-figures on Friday, and the Wolves picked up a 53-44 victory over Dickinson Trinity.

The Wolves led 19-17 at the end of the first quarter, but Watford City put the clamps down on defense in the middle quarters, where it allowed just 11 points to the Titans (1-5).

Watford City (4-0) senior Mackenzie Sparby led all players with 16 points. She was joined in double-figures by Avery Sundeen (13 points), Lida Lehton (12) and Emma Mogen (10).

"Sparby is a force for Watford City in the paint on both ends. She clogged the paint and forced us to the perimeter,” Trinity head coach Carter Fong said. “We were hot and cold with the three. We made nine of them but attempted a bunch."

Sami Daniel scored 12 points to lead the Titans, and Jordie McNeilly followed with 10.

"Our schedule outside of the region is as tough as it gets,” Fong said. “We look forward to opening up regional play on Tuesday at home against Hazen and we have a chance to gain some momentum heading into Christmas break."
