Just three games into the season the Woodhaven girls’ basketball team has scored almost 200 points.

The Warriors are averaging 63.7 points a game while only allowing their opponent an average of 32.

On Tuesday they added another notch in the win column with a 57-14 rout of Trenton in a Downriver League match up.

The Cassie Breen show started right away as she led the Warriors to a 20-4 lead after just one quarter, putting up three of her night’s five triples.

Hailey Leidel was just behind with five points in the opening quarter and the two dominated the floor all night putting up basket after basket.

Trenton put up a good fight early, but the deficit got to be too much to overcome in the end.

Aevah Hebda dominated the glass in the first half, bringing down 10 boards to help the Trojans’ cause.

Seven triples from the Warriors in the first half alone helped the team to a 34-10 advantage at the half and they cruised from there.

Trenton’s only point of the third quarter came from a Kaylie Crowell free throw.

The fourth quarter brought a running clock and the lowest scoring quarter for the Warriors who put up five points to Trenton’s three.

Trenton took a big hit when they lost Hebda to an injury in the second half, but Coach Rob Sauter credited his team for never giving up.

“They didn’t’ give up,” he said. “I was really proud of them. They battled.

“What happens is when you don’t make your shots, it really starts to wear on you and we just didn’t make our shots today.”

Early on, Satuer thought his team played a better game.

“I honestly thought we came out and played well early, we just didn’t finish the process,” he said. “All the things we asked them to do they did, other than we just really struggled with our shooting.

“They got on their shooters well (and) we really started off rebounding very well which has been a problem for us.”

Woodhaven Coach Rodney Scharboneau was pleased with his team’s performance and gave credit to Trenton.

“We played well,” he said. “I thought we had good energy and we shot the ball well at times.

“I wanna give the Trenton girls credit for not giving up. They played hard, they just didn’t shoot the ball very well.”

For Scharboneau, it was not about the amount of triples put up each night, but rather the scoring as a whole.

“We wanna attack, whether it’s from the three-point line or the basket,” he said. “We wanna be an attack team.

“Seems like whoever we play, we play the same way … it’s about our numbers. We try to shoot for our numbers and have fun.”

And the Warriors did put up good numbers in the team effort. Every player on the roster contributed in one way or another in the victory.

Breen led all scorers with 19 points and six rebounds. Leidel was just behind with 15 points and nine rebounds.

Allison Manning and Kacey Cassette each had five points and Manning finished with 10 rebounds.

Lyndsay Brenna finished with four points and four rebound and Emma Sikina and Summer Patterson each finished with three points.

The Warriors put up 10 triples in the win.

Trenton was led by Crowell with five points and seven rebounds.

Briana Plonka had three points and one rebound and Izzy Olds, Shelby Kohler and Hebda put up a basket each.

Hebda finished with 10 rebounds before sitting the second half for an injury and Kohler brought down five boards.

The Trojans will host Melvindale on Thursday while the Warriors take on Kennedy.
