GATES MILLS – Gilmour Academy’s basketball team took early command this afternoon and never let the momentum slip away on the way to a 71-35 win over Laurel School for Girls here in the Gilmour Athletic Center on the campus of the Academy.

When it was evident that Laurel was going to take away the inside game, Gilmour went to its guards, who nailed eight three-pointers, including four early in the second half that put away the game early.

Gilmour jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead with baskets by Brittany Layton, Abby Deckard, and Calla Telzrow.

Laurel was aided with four successful free throws in the first quarter and then pulled to with three, 9-6, when Jenna Bailey went coast-to-coast with a loose ball.

The Lancers then went on a 7-0 run to open up their first 10-point lead, holding a 16-6 advantage going into the second quarter. An old-fashioned three-point play by Jessica Janota highlighted the run.

After the two clubs traded baskets on a few transitions in the second quarter, Melanie Trushel came off the bench and hit two consecutive threes to give Gilmour a 26-12 lead midway through the second.

Gilmour’s Rachel Staton hit her second three of the afternoon, but that was traded for one by Laurel’s Alexis Guy, also in the waning moments of the first half, which ended with Gilmour holding a 30-17 lead.

Right at the onset of the second half, the Lancers opened up their biggest lead up to that point when they went on a 21-0 run to start the second half on the backbone of the three-point shooting of Telzrow and Kelsey Dugger, who combined for four threes (two each) in the run, which also had Layton give her three cents worth with an old fashioned three-point play.

Defensively, the Lancers kept forcing the Gators to throw up bricks in the third quarter, keeping the shutout intact until a minute and a half remained and Naja Davis finally came up with a deuce for the guests.

While Dugger had the long-rang gun powdered, it as her defensive assignment that shone the most in this one. Her job was to guard Guy, who has been averaging nearly 30 points per game.

Dugger, whose dad played for Gilmour coach Bob Beutal at Eastlake North High in the 1970s and who is only a freshman, carried the defensive task with an A, holding guy down to two points.

Gilmour held a robust 54-19 lead at the ¾ mark of the game.

The Lancers led by as many as 37 points in the fourth quarter
