CATHEDRAL CITY — The Twentynine Palms High School girls varsity basketball team held onto its perfect record in the Desert Valley League and a share of first place after a trip to Cathedral City Wednesday, Jan. 8.

The Wildcats’ combination of powerful offense and overwhelming defense helped them beat the Lions 73-32 in a game where the Twentynine Palms girls jumped out to a 45-9 halftime edge.

Taylor Scamman contributed 16 points, eight rebounds and eight steals, Kate Bobadilla poured in 18 points and Riley King added 10 points.

The win gives the Wildcats a 5-0 mark in Desert Valley League play. They were ready to host Banning High School Friday. Next week, they will face the team that holds the other half of first place in the De Anza League: the Yucca Valley High School Lady Trojans.
