The Belle Vernon Area girls scored the first 29 points Thursday night in their Section 3-4A opener with Yough. The Leopards began emptying their bench early as they cruised to a 41-20 win.

“It’s very important to start the game strong and finish the game strong,” BVA coach Lisa Fairman said. “We have to play a full 32 minutes out there. If we can do that, things will look good as the season goes on.”
