December 18, 2012 · 12:32 PM
A big second half of scoring by 5'10 senior Qiara Norwood helped Franklin dispatch the Spartans 49-42 late last week in girls basketball.
Bainbridge led 19-18 at the end of the first quarter on 8-of-13 shooting, and Franklin missed all but one of five three-point attempts. Paige Brigham paced Bainbridge with five points in the first quarter.
Norwood helped Franklin find its footing, however, with 3-of-5 shooting in the second quarter.
The Quakers went into halftime with a 27-24 lead, and built a nine-point advantage by the end of the third quarter.
Although the Spartans outscored Franklin and were able to cut into the Quakers' lead in the fourth quarter, the visitors held on to win in the Metro League matchup.
Grace Kenyon led Bainbridge with 14 points.
Sydney Severson scored 13 points for the Spartans, and Julie Feikes added six. Maddie Ketcheside contributed four.
Norwood led all scorers with 18 points.
Franklin also got double-digit scoring efforts from Jazmin Horne (13) and Raven Burleson (10).
The loss dropped the Spartans to 1-2 in Metro play (4-3 overall).
Bainbridge starts this week on the road against Rainier Beach on Wednesday, and the Spartans return to the island Friday to face Eastside Catholic.
