Don Bosco’s bus arrived about a half hour late to the game but that really only delayed the inevitable. The Eudora girls jumped out to an early lead, a whopping early lead and crushed Don Bosco 83-2 Tuesday in the Tonganoxie Invitational.

Eudora led 36-0 at the end of the first quarter and 52-0 at the half. The mercy rule was enacted and a continuous clock ran from the second quarter on.

“I told the girls that it’s one of those games that we forget about and move on,” Eudora coach Ryan Luke said after the game. “We made a lot of mistakes but I thought we did a good job just playing the game and trying to do the best we could do. We’re just ready to move on.”

Haley Epperson led Eudora with 16 points, hitting all eight of her shots. Bailey Scott added 13 and Evan Folks and Rachel Pyle both scored nine apiece for Eudora (8-1).

Don Bosco’s lone basket came from Jessica President during the third quarter. Eudora will play Silver Lake at 3 p.m. on Friday in Tonganoxie in the second round. Eudora beat Silver Lake earlier in the season.

“They are very well coached and they are a really good team, so it’s going to be a really good game,” Luke said. “It’s going to be a huge challenge for us. That’s a game we definitely would like to win.
