Berthoud girls can't measure up to Broomfield, 68-20

BROOMFIELD — Berthoud senior Rose Heaphy summed up the challenge she faced Tuesday night at Broomfield High School with one pertinent sentence.
“I’ve never guarded a girl 6-6 before,” Heaphy said.

She was speaking of Lady Eagles center Anna Prins. The 6-foot-6 post player scored a game-high 14 points, but it was her presence on the court that played a much bigger role than the points she scored in Broomfield’s 68-20 victory.

With her low-post presence and the Eagles’ tenacious full-court press in the first half, Broomfield, the two-time defending state champion, scored the game’s first 16 points and led by 35 at halftime.

The Spartans (4-4, 3-2 4A Northern Conference) didn’t score their first points until Amy Ekart’s jumper with 33 seconds left in the first quarter. Berthoud managed just seven field goals in the contest, none in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles’ first-half dominance was so effective that Prins played just four minutes in the second half and not at all in the fourth quarter.Berthoud, which was coming off a 31-25 win over Frederick on Saturday night, continued a pattern of winning one game, losing the next that has marked the season thus far.

Broomfield improved to 9-0 on the season, 6-0 in the conference.
“We did the best we could given the talent they have,” said Heaphy, who with Ekart scored a team-high six points each.
