These three Ferndale girls basketball players supplied the offense against Meridian

Three Ferndale girls basketball players scored in double figures as the host Golden Eagles knocked off Meridian for a 61-57 Northwest Conference win Thursday night.

Jamie Johnson (17), Rylee Weg (14) and Carmelita Rodriguez (12) were the catalysts behind Ferndale’s attack. Rodriguez played all but two minutes of the game and defended Meridian’s Ellesse Fitzgerald, holding her to 12 points.

“She (Rodriguez) had a nice floor game for us,” Ferndale coach Mike Ivy said.

Johnson hit a 3-pointer in the third quarter and another in the fourth quarter to give Ferndale (12-5 overall, 8-2) a 7-point lead.

The Trojans (14-3 overall, 8-2) were led by Kyrin Baklund who had 24 points.
