  • The Eldorado High School girls' basketball team got back on the winning track with a resounding 68-38 win over Johnston City Monday night to stay undefeated in Black Diamond East play.
    The Eagles improved to 7-0 in BDC play and are now 17-5 overall.
    Eldorado put three players in double figures, including a carrer-high 24 points from Taylor Goodley.
    "Goodley came out really aggressive for us early scoring 10 in the first and 18 of her 24 in the first half," EHS head coach Josh Bradley. "I thought we had a little trouble early on in the first quarter on the defensive end with JC's bigs. We were able to make a few defensive adjustments and were able to separate out scoring them 16-4 in the second quarter."
    Eldorado took a 32-17 lead at halftime and went on the offensive, outscoring Johnston City 18-2 in the third quarter to take a 50-19.
    Erica Graczyk tacked on 12 points for Eldorado, while Paige Zertuche had 10 points.
    "Graczyk had another strong performance for us tonight in the post scoring 12 and Zertuche had been struggling a little shooting the ball and found a groove tonight hitting a couple of 3-pointers."
    Kourtney Phillips added eight points, while Abby Steed finished with four points. Ashton Unthank and Jacquelyn Artman each had three points. Caitlyn Stafforda nd Riley Duckworth both had two points for Eldorado.
    The Eagles shot 33 percent from the field and went 35 percent from beyond the arc, knocking down 5-of-14 3-pointers.
    Artman pulled down a team high 12 rebounds, 10 of which came on the defensive end, while Goodley was two rebounds away from a double-double with eight. Graczyk hauled in six rebounds and Unthank provided three rebounds.
    On the junior varsity end, Eldorado stayed undefeated in conference play on the season with a 43-29 win over Johnston City.
    Steed led all scorers with 14 points, while Dresdyn Bramlett added eight points. Lacy Jo Bradley chipped in with seven points, while Brooklyn Peavler, Stafford and Duckworth all had four points. Jordan Bailey had two points.
