Richmond, Hyde in basketball split
BATH — Jamie Plummer scored 17 points and had six steals in one half of work as the Richmond High School girls basketball team made quick work of Hyde with a 58-7 Class D victory on Wednesday.
The Bobcats, 10-0 and scheduled to host Valley tonight at 5:30 p.m., received 10 points and six rebounds from Brianna Snedeker, six points and eight rebounds from Haley Murphy and four points, seven rebounds and five steals from Noell Acord. Richmond was 12 of 19 at the foul line.
“Everyone on the team except for Danica Hurley, who normally averages seven assists a game but didn’t play much against Hyde, had at least one assist,” said Richmond coach Molly Bishop.
Hyde (0-10), which trailed 18- 2, 34-2 and 44-2 at the quarter breaks, received two points each from Jaleen Martinez, Katie Comeau and Susanna McManus. The Phoenix travel to Islesboro tonight.

The host Phoenix darted out to a 27-1 halftime lead and cruised to a Western Class D victory over the Bobcats in Bath.
“We had 11 turnovers in the first half and took just 12 shots,” said Richmond coach Phil Houdlette, whose team is 3- 8 and hosts Valley tonight at 7 p.m. “Hyde is long and athletic. Their coach was pretty generous because they didn’t press us. They are a good team.”
Andrew Haren paced 9-0 Hyde, which visits Islesboro tonight, with eight points, while Jonah Alexander had seven. The Phoenix finished three of eight at the foul line.
Ben Carver had a game-high 10 points for Richmond, which was one of five at the charity stripe.
