  • Winning streaks over for Fillies and Breds

    Saturday night took a toll on the two-game winning streak of the Fillies and the four-game streak of the Thorobreds as both lost on the road.  
    The Fillies dropped a 57-48 verdict to Bishop Brossart in Alexandria as they fell behind early and could not catch up.  
    The Thorobreds trailed by 11 at the half but Collins went on a 17-to-2 run to open the second half for the 63-51 win.
    Brossart scored the first six points of the Fillies’ contest before senior Whitney Gray scored with nearly two minutes gone in the game.
