Girls basketball roundup: Camanche tumbles

CAMANCHE — West Branch pulled away over the final seven minutes Friday, sending Camanche to its third consecutive loss, 50-41 in a River Valley Conference girls basketball game.

The Bears scored the first five points and led 20-12 midway through the second quarter. But, Kylie Vogel (17 points) caught fire from the outside and led a Camanche comeback. She buried three 3-point baskets in the final four minutes of the half to pull the Indians even at 23 before the Bears went up 25-23 at the half.

West Branch re-established the lead in the third quarter and clinched the win from the free-throw line. Haley Mullinnex made 7 of 9 free throws in the second half and finished with 13 points for the Bears. Ashley Finnigan also scored 13 for West Branch.
