Boles becomes fifth Lapel player to reach 1,000 points

LAPEL — The Lapel girls basketball team played its last official home game of the 2013-14 season Tuesday night and made the most of it with a 60-29 win over district rival Frankton.

Tuesday was originally supposed to be Senior Night for Lapel, but with the impending weather situation, the Bulldogs moved the ceremony to a night earlier against Wapahani.

The decision also was made Tuesday to play a varsity-only game against the Eagles.

The Bulldogs started slowly, which was a concern going in for coach Kevin Brattain.

“We were really worried about our intensity and focus after (Monday) night (an emotional win over Wapahani),” Brattain said. “It’s always a big game when you play Frankton, and the girls were up for it.”

It was a big night for Lapel senior forward Mackenzie Boles as she surpassed the 1,000-point mark in her career. Boles was the high scorer for the game and keyed an important second-quarter stretch as Lapel pulled away from Frankton.

Marissa Stephens scored the first bucket of the second quarter to trim the lead to three before Kirsten Rich scored back-to-back baskets to give Lapel its largest lead of the night. Boles took over from there, scoring nine points as Lapel outscored Frankton 21-9 to take a 33-16 halftime lead.

Boles opened the second half with two straight baskets to up the lead to 21.

The Eagles scored four points in the third and trailed 45-20 heading into the final stanza.

Boles and fellow seniors Daniele Burnell and Kaitlin Dobbins were on the court in the fourth quarter when Brattain started taking them out one by one. First up was Boles, and it was announced that she had become the fifth player in program history to surpass the 1,000-point mark.

“I was very shocked,” Boles said of the milestone. “I had no idea how close I was.”
