From the opening tap it was Attleboro in command, from the field house in Dartmouth. Kerri Beland put Attleboro on the board with two free throws.  Emily Houle followed with a score and Sarah Deyo hit on back to back shots, the second from behind the arc, giving Attleboro a 9-0 advantage.  The Indians didn’t score until 1:56 remaining in the first quarter.  Free throws by Kim Runey saw the Bombardiers in the lead, 11-5, at the end of the first stanza.

A shot inside by Captain Beth Clifton opened up the second 8 minute segment and free throws by Runey and Beland upped the Bombardier lead to 16-5.  Baskets by Sarah Deyo, Beland, Captain Bri LaPlume and a free throw and hoop by Beland closed out the first half with Attleboro taking a commanding 25-7 lead.

Attleboro continued to score at will, during the second half, and Dartmouth was unable to make much needed adjustments.  All the Bombardier starters contributed to the lead during this quarter and it ended with Attleboro in control, 42-11.

During the final 8 minutes of play Coach Missy Traversi cleared the bench.  6 points by Beland, 2 by Cassie Viviar and a free throw by Melissa Sheehan ended the game with the Bombardiers heading back to Attleboro with a 51-31 victory.

Kerri Beland had her first double-double of the season, with 16 points and 11 rebounds.  Bri LaPlume added 7 points and 10 rebounds, while Emily Houle chipped in with 6 points and 10 rebounds.

Attleboro is now 3-3 and 1-3 in league play.  The Bombardiers will travel to Canton on Friday, for a 6:30 game.
