Saints top Wheeler


NORTH STONINGTON — It would be an understatement to say that Friday’s ECC Small Division opener was a rough game for the Wheeler High girls’ basketball team.

The Lions’ had all sorts of problems on the offensive end of the floor, had just two points by halftime and lost to St. Bernard 64-12.

“We just can’t put the ball in the basket,” Wheeler coach Dan Baker said. “We had some chances to score on some layups and make it respectable, but we missed some of those too.”

St. Bernard led 28-2 at halftime and 48-4 after three quarters.

Mackenzie Brayman and Jess Muller each led Wheeler (1-2, 0-1 ECC-Small) with four points.

Muller also led the team with eight rebounds and six assists. Brayman had five boards.

Kaitlyn Berkel led all scorers with 19 points.

The Saints improved to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in the ECC-Small.

St. Bernard posted an 8-2 division record in the 2012-2013 season and placed second in the ECC-Small.

The Saints beat the Lions 52-17 and 50-26 last season.

Next up for Wheeler is an out-of-division game against ECC-Medium New London Monday at 7 p.m.
