It didn't take long for the Esko girls basketball team to serve notice that they will be a team to be reckoned with, even with a new coach. Scott Antonutti took the reins of the program this season and his Eskomos raced out to a 57-40 win over Crosby-Ironton on Tuesday night in Esko.

In the past, under the guidance of former coach Sue Northey, the Eskomos were known for their depth and balance. None of that changed Tuesday as the Eskomos had 11 different players make it in the scoring column. The Eskomos were led in points by Amanda Bergstedt and Roz Chromy who finished with 14 and 11 points, respectively.

Esko pushed the pace early and gained a 30-14 halftime lead and then just put the game in a cruise control mode as they eased to the win.

Also scoring for Esko were Julianne Carley and Keely Deadrick both scoring six points, Kelli Rengo added five, it was Kelsey Saralampi and Amber Jubie scoring four points, Lydia Pelletier finished with three, Alyson Glumac added a pair of points, while Farrah Wirtz and Katie Tonner each recorded a point.

The Rangers were led in scoring by Christina Mapson who finished with nine points.
