SIKESTON — Last year’s game between the Ste. Genevieve and Sikeston girls’ basketball teams was a taut affair, with the Bulldogs winning by three.
As the Dragons start over from scratch this season, such drama didn’t materialize on Monday, Dec. 20.
Sikeston, behind a 31-point second quarter and 33 points from Amyari Bissett, defeated Ste. Genevieve 77-28. The Bulldogs improved to 6-1 heading into this week’s St. Dominic Tournament.
Both Bri Abt and Jamison Kemper totaled five points for the Dragons. Abt also corralled six rebounds. Chloe Staffen contributed four steals, and Alli Byington three. Kayden Huck dished off a pair of assists.
Sikeston pulled ahead 19-7 after one quarter of play, and kept a double-digit advantage the rest of the game.
In the junior varsity game, Ste. Genevieve topped Sikeston, 32-28.
