Archmere girls use two first-half runs to storm by Concord


CLAYMONT Archmere’s girls basketball used two big first-half runs to beat the Concord Raiders, 58-20, on Feb. 2. The game was postponed a day by Friday’s snow, but that didn’t hurt the Auks.

The teams were tied at four early when Madison Stewart stole the ball and laid it in to start a 19-0 run for the Auks. Emma McCann had nine of those points, but she had help from Stewart and Isabella Gioffre. The Auks ended the quarter with a 23-4 lead.

Fiona Teaney hit two three-pointers in the third quarter for the Auks as they extended the lead to 54-16.
