At the Half: 40-26 St. Pats

Alex Cowling is trying to keep a serious face at the half, but go ahead and smile and enjoy the moment. Cowling scores another 12 points in the second quarter and has 24 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists and is 8-of-11 from the field and 6-for-6 from the free throw line.

The most points scored in a CIF championship game by an individual is Cheryl Miller’s 41 points in 1982. Cowling has a ways to go but another half like the first and it’s not out of the question.

The Bruins are running all over the Mustangs who are of sync and, frankly, looked stunned.

Meanwhile, Marlborough’s big gun, Nikki Speed is 2 of 8 from the field for 5 points. She’s fast but at times looks out of control and the team is following her lead. The Monarchs are 9-for-31 from the field and have 14 turnovers.
