The Wildcats held nothing back as they quickly went on a 13-2 scoring run in the opening quarter that continued into half-time with Montague ahead 21-4. Defense was a strength for the Wildcats holding the Bulldogs under 20 points and forcing 24 turnovers on the night.
It was a redeeming performance for the Wildcats and the win will keep pushing them into the right direction.
“Great bounce back for the Wildcats,” said Coach Nick Thaler. “Everyone contributed to a great team win for us.”
Claire Meacham led the Montague offense with 12 points, three blocked shots and two rebounds while Kendall Osborne tossed in eight points, had eight steals, four rebounds and two assists.
Montague moves to 6-2 with a 5-1 record in the Western Michigan Conference and will play at Fremont on Monday for non-league play.
