The Galesburg Girls basketball team opened their season with a win as they defeat the Metamora Redbirds 52 to 25. The Streaks led 13 to 5 at the end of the first quarter and 24 to 9 at the half and they really never let up. The Streaks out scored Metamora every quarter in the game.
A lot of turnovers in the game as both teams ended up with 19. The Streaks shot the ball and moved the ball well enough offensively to come out with the win. Riley Jenkins led the way with 17 points, Kaylee Miller had 11 points for the game including three 3 pointers. The Silver Streaks hit six 3 pointers for the game and were 14 for 19 from the free throw line.
Kadynce Lydic was our Dave’s Auto Body Crunch-Time Player of the Game. She had a couple of huge defensive plays in the 3rd quarter with two steals and a lay up at a critical point in the game as Metamora was trying to make a come back.
Next up for the Streaks Girls Basketball Team will be the Freeport Pretzels coming up on Saturday the 23rd at John Thiel gym in Galesburg.
