Jordan Beers scored a game-high 29 points and Marisa Cawley grabbed 27 rebounds as Franklin stayed undefeated by beating Cherry Valley-Springfield, 53-40, at home in a Tri-Valley League girls basketball game Friday.
“When I added up the totals, I couldn’t believe Marisa had that many rebounds,” Franklin coach Mike Dutcher said. “She has been averaging double figures in rebounds, but she has never had a game like this. CV-S has good players (inside), but she had a very good game.
“She’s a very good athlete,” he continued, “and if she can’t get in the right position to get the rebound, she is very good at tipping it to herself.”
Cawley, who also scored 12 points, had 16 rebounds in the second half.
Dutcher said he was also pleased with reserve forward Mara Stalter, who had five points, seven rebounds and six blocks. She replaced Haley Downin, who left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury.
“I really have to praise Mara,” he said. “She came in and played out of position, and gave us a really good game.”
Kylie Graham and Maddie Archer scored 10 points each to lead CV-S.
Franklin (6-0, 4-0) plays Friday at Gilbertsville-Mount Upton.
