After a hard-fought season-opening loss to Milton, the Big Foot girls basketball team has wasted little time in getting right back on track.

And they’ve done so in dominating fashion.

Big Foot improved to 2-1 Nov. 21 with a convincing 69-38 win at East Troy, which came on the heels of a 67-40 victory Nov. 17 at Brodhead-Juda.

The Chiefs took control early over the Trojans with a 35-14 first-half lead and cruised from there.

Payton Courier led a balanced scoring attack with 17 points, followed by Courtney Schoenbeck with 11, Reagan Courier and Sophia Foster each with nine and Abby VandeBogart with eight.

VandeBogart knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the contest.

The story was similar against Brodhead to open the week, as the Chiefs were in control from the start.

Reagan Courier poured in a game-high 26 points to lead the way, followed by Payton Courier with 10, Schoenbeck with nine and Zanzie Demco and Makenzie Lueck each with six.

Comments from Big Foot coach Rick Schoenbeck were unavailable by press time.

Big Foot is back in action Tuesday, Nov. 28 when it hosts Clinton at 7:15 p.m.
