The Superior High School girls basketball team continued to roll Friday night with a 78-43 victory over the Hudson Raiders.
“This was a big seeding game and a good road win,” SHS coach Phil Roe said.
Superior improves to 7-1 with the victory, while Hudson falls to 3-3.
The Raiders controlled the game early and actually led at the end of the first quarter, 17-12. Superior rallied in the second quarter to take a 33-28 lead at halftime, and the Spartans outscored Hudson 45-15 in the second half.
Sophomore Mackenzie Kmecik had a big game for Superior, scoring a career high 26 points.
“She really showed that she can be a force scoring,” Roe said. “Her play tonight makes us stronger as a team.”
