Carlton improved to 8-5 on Thursday with a 60-46 girls basketball win over McGregor in Carlton.

"We played all right," said Carlton coach Dave Battaglia. "We've had some girls sick and some injuries, but we're still not where we should be."

The Bulldogs slipped out to a 37-25 lead in the first half and then held a 10-14 point lead most of the second half.

"We need to be a bit tougher on defense," explained Battaglia. "We've been giving up too many easy baskets and I just don't think we are working as hard as we can on defense."

Perhaps part of the issue is the fact that the Bulldogs are scoring more points and in a quicker fashion this season than last year, which was Battaglia's first at the helm as head coach.

"That could be a big part of it," stated Battaglia. "I still think we are a half step slow in our trap and we are just not consistent."

Offensively, a highlight has been Amber Bloom who pumped in 24 points in leading Carlton on offense, Alissa Sandstrom, Christine Bryant and Marissa Wojtysiak had eight points, April Davis, Shellye George and Natasha Godbout had four points apiece.

Lacey Sprague and Stephanie Troup led the Mercs with 10 points each.
