Hot start fuels Farmington past PCA

Eighth-grader Shaylee DiPrizio poured in a career-high 26 points to lead Farmington past visiting Portsmouth Christian Academy, 68-54, on Friday night.

The Tigers came out the gates firing as they tallied 23 1st-quarter points, including six threes, and led by 14 after one.

Madi Ricker got the three-point barrage started in the first before Jaelyn Prosper connected on three triples of her own and DiPrizio added another. Anna Cardinal beat the buzzer at the end of the quarter to put a bow on the statement quarter by the Tigers.

The opening stanza surge by Farmington proved to be the difference as the Tigers went on to win by that 14-point margin.

Prosper had four threes on the night and tallied 14 points for the Tigers. PCA was paced by 17 points from Ava Buchanan.

With the win, Farmington improves to 10-4 on the season, while the Eagles had their five-game win streak snapped and fall to 8-5.
