The Lady Devils stopped the Peck Pirates 55-40 in a non-league contest.

Peck, though, kept the game close for a half and trailed by just two, 22-20.

Brown City stretched the margin to seven, 37-30, in the third quarter and pulled away from there.

Junior Kendal Muxlow of Brown City started where she left off a year ago by firing in a game-high 31 points, including 10 points in the final eight minutes. She also finished with 10 rebounds and eight steals. Carleigh Randolph followed with 10 points (4 assists, 4 steals) and Alexis Wiltsie had eight points (6 assists, 4 steals).

The LadyPirates had 10 points each from sophomores Samantha Bissett and Emma Engler.

The Lady Broncos opened the season on Tuesday with an impressive, nail-biting win at home over Yale, 46-45. Carly Warda recorded 15 points, five rebounds and three steals, Reese Ruhlman added 15 points, five boards, one steal and one block and Autumn Deshetsky added six points and seven rebounds.

Emily Ludescher tallied four points and four rebounds, Kendal Wilson added three points and Erin Wadley had one point, two rebounds and a steal.

“We came out strong in the first half offensively, outscoring Yale 30-19,” said North Branch coach Timothy Gormley. “We shot well from the floor and controlled the tempo of the game. Second half wasn’t great for us. We were outscored in both quarters but held on in the end.

“Carly was on tonight along with Reese. We still have a lot of work to do both offensively and defensively but it was a good opening win.”
