GLADEVILLE -- Station Camp's girls took an early lead Tuesday night before host Wilson Central went on a run which may still be going on except the clock finally ran out on the Lady Wildcats' 66-37 thumping.

The Lady Bison built an 11-6 lead midway through the first quarter on a three-pointer by Marisa Wirtz before the Lady Wildcats went on an extended 27-8 run to reach halftime ahead 33-19. They widened the margin to 50-26 going into the fourth as Central improved to 10-6 for the season and 3-2 in District 9-AAA.

"They hit some big shots in the beginning," Lady Wildcats coach Erica Wilson said. "They hit some outside shots and we were going to try to force them to shoot outside and take away the middle, and they hit those shots.

"We wanted to play them full court. Eventually, we settled down and things went our way and we never looked back."

Sydnee Richetto led the Lady Wildcats as usual with 24 points, including three 3-pointers. Freshman guard Jakoria Woods came off the bench to drive for eight of her 10 points in the second quarter. Senior forward Nicole Brill closed strong with eight of her 10 in the fourth. Campbell Strange and Jasmin Angel each scored seven points, Kristen Smith four and Kensley Carter and Savannah Kirby two apiece.

"That's the fun thing about us right now is we've been saying all season on any given night it can be somebody's game," Wilson said. "We haven't put together a big game where we had all five in double digits, but we've had four in double digits. When you have freshmen come off the bench and can drive to the basket and do high-energy things like that, that's a spark you need."

Wirtz led the Lady Bison with 13 points, including a pair of threes as Station Camp fell to 8-9, 2-3 going into Friday's home game against Mt. Juliet.
