CORSICA — In a Class B clash featuring teams with 10-plus wins and only two losses to their names entering the night, No. 2-ranked Corsica-Stickney muscled its way past Bridgewater-Emery on the way to a 71-55 girls basketball victory Monday night.

The Jaguars decisively won the interior battle, shooting 26 of 44 (59%) from the floor — plenty of layups mixed in — and converted 12 of 13 free-throw attempts on the offensive end and piling up a 28 to 18 rebounding advantage over the Huskies.

Exceptional second and third quarter efforts by Corsica-Stickney defined the contest. A quick surge by the Jaguars turned a two-point lead into eight in a matter of moments, creating separation for the home team. Timely shot-making by Bridgewater-Emery kept the contest within single digits heading into halftime, but Corsica-Stickney used a 17-8 third quarter to pull away, growing the lead to as much as 19 points.
