At Montpelier, Sara Boone had 15 points and made three of the Ririe High School girls basketball team's seven 3-pointers in a 53-25 nonconference road win over Bear Lake.

Ririe coach Damien Smith said the first quarter was a 'boxing match' with numerous Bulldogs on the bench with two fouls. The Bulldogs then broke open the game with a 23-point second quarter to take a 30-8 halftime lead.

"We were in the double bonus in the first quarter," Smith said. "It was a good physical test for my basketball team early in the season. Sara Boone, she carried us in the first half offensively."

Anna Boone and Maddie Johnson each added nine points for Ririe (2-1), which hosts South Fremont on Tuesday.
