Photo by Dan Nilsen GRAND BLANC— It was a tight contest, but the Lady Bobcats pulled away from Kensington Lakes Activities Association rival Walled Lake Central in a 39-28 win last Friday, improving Grand Blanc’s record to 3-1. The Bobcats picked up the victory with multiple starters out of the lineup.

Kara Puidokas tossed in 17 points for Grand Blanc, while Taylor Garner recorded 11 of her own.

“Our season feels as if we’ve already played in a few playoff games,” said coach Megan Noll. “ We are getting a lot of experience with late-game, time/score situations. Our team has proven that it will fight to the end no no matter what.”

The Bobcats hope to keep rolling with their impressive start.

“ We’ve done a wonderful job so far with the in-and-out game,” continued Noll. “Our posts are playing extremely well and the guards are feeding off of their play. Teams become really hard to beat when they offer multiple threats.” — B.P. GOODRICH
