Prep basketball: Archbishop Murphy girls lose district title game

MOUNT VERNON — The Burlington-Edison girls basketball team jumped all over Archbishop Murphy in the first half to coast to an easy 76-54 win in the 2A District 1 Tournament championship game Friday at Mount Vernon High School, handing the Wildcats just their second loss of the season.

Emily Rodabaugh scored 22 points to lead Archbishop Murphy (21-2 overall), but the Wildcats couldn’t contain the Tigers’ Allyson Ray, who finished with a game-high 30 points.

Archbishop Murphy also had difficulty slowing down the Tigers’ offense early on, as Burlington-Edison raced out to a 24-8 lead after the first quarter. The Tigers (18-5) padded their advantage in the second and led 45-19 at the half, removing any suspense from the contest.
