Riding a suffocating defense that has held opponents under 40 points in all but one game this month, the Red Hawks captured their eighth consecutive victory Friday night. Frontier stayed undefeated in January, holding Turners Falls High School to just five points in the first half en route to a convincing 43-19 independent girls’ basketball win in Turners Falls.

“Frontier played awesome defense — awesome defense,” admitted Turners Falls head coach Ted Wilcox, whose team finished 6-for-30 from the field in the loss. “We couldn’t make a hoop in the first half to save our life. You have those days where you just can’t put anything in but I don’t want to take anything away from (Frontier). They played very good defense.”

Frontier led 10-5 after one quarter, but the second frame was where the Red Hawks created some separation. The visitors held Turners (7-5) off the scoreboard in the quarter, outscoring the Powertown by a 14-0 margin to take a 24-5 lead into halftime.

While defense was the name of the game, Frontier’s offense was led by Lexa Boyden, who dropped in a game-high 14 points. Ella Deane and Amelia Sobieski had 7 points apiece, while Olivia Deane and Marie Diemand each scored 5 points.

“Boyden was great inside for them,” lauded Wilcox. “And Ella controls the court with her ball-handling skills. She’s a great guard.”

Maddy Chmyzinski was the high-scorer for Turners with 5 points. Chloe Ellis added 3 points as the Powertown were held to a season-low in the loss.
