MILLBURY, Mass. — After a big first quarter, the Millbury girls basketball team rolled over Narragansett, 67-47, in the opening round of the state tournament playoffs Tuesday night at Millbury High.

The Woolies opened a 13-point lead, 24-11, after the first quarter behind Molly McCausland’s eight-point effort, which included a pair of three-point shots. Brooke Nadeau’s seven in the opening frame also sparked Millbury.

The Woolies had a big second quarter as well, outscoring Narragansett, 18-9, and opening a 22-point lead at halftime. Playing without their big center Payton Bruegger, the Woolies needed a big team effort and they got it.

With a balanced scoring attack, Millbury was led by Brooke Nadeau, who scored a game high 17 points and 12 rebounds. Breanna Winberg added 14. Rebecca Thornburg, who stepped up well in Breugger’s absence, scored 12 as McCausland added 10 more.

Raegan Mulherin, who scored 18 points, led Narragansett in the losing effort.

With the win, the Woolies move on and will play at Nashoba on Friday at 7 p.m.
