Hungerford, Bookhout and Forgit also grabbed eight rebounds apiece.

Emily Kopp scored 10 of her 12 points in the first half for the Chiefs (16-2), who held a 34-16 lead at the break.

“A lot of her points came in transition,” SC coach Ed Heslop said. “Tonight, she was the person on the break.”

Adrianne Torea contributed 10 points for SC, which received nine from Sydney Cullen and eight apiece from Jessie Kopp and Alex Hetherington.

Lindsay Laing had seven points for the Tri-Valley League’s Leopards, whose season ended at 10-8.
