Girls basketball: Farmington's Chadwick scores 31 at Sibley
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

Farmington shot 49 percent from the field and turned the ball over just six times while producing its highest scoring output of the season in a 79-62 road win at Henry Sibley Friday night.


Junior guard Sofia Chadwick singed the nets with a career-high 31 points. She made 14 free throws and also grabbed seven rebounds and handed out five assists.

As a team, the Tigers were 23 of 28 from the line, including 16 of 20 in the second half.

“The team played very well,” coach Sondra Chadwick said. “I wasn’t too happy that we also gave up 62 points, but the girls shot well enough to keep us ahead.”

Abby Gallus and Alicia Hett joined Chadwick in double figures. Gallus scored 16 points on 5 of 7 shooting and Hett burned the Henry Sibley zone defense with three first-half three-pointers en route to 13 points.

Leah Hammond added eight points, Morgan Mach scored six and Heidi Lambrecht chipped in five off the bench.

“They did a great job coming off the bench and hitting some key shots for us,” Chadwick said.

The Tigers (5-5) will have to win on the road this week to get back above .500 as they traveled to Northfield for their Missota Conference opener Tuesday and travel to Red Wing tomorrow.
