The Gleason girls went on a second period scoring barrage Friday night, while the boys again could not score enough.
The Bulldog teams opened up District 13A play at home against Clarksburg with a 59-22 win in the girls’ game and 66-40 setback in boys’ play.
Heather Whitworth led a second period scoring outburst with three of her five 3-pointers in the game.
A 15-point first period run by the Rockets dashed all hopes for the Bulldogs’ first win of the season as Devon Bailey score 15 of his game high 31 points in the first period for Clarksburg.
Gleason will back in action tonight at West Carroll in another district set.

The Lady Bulldogs (2-3, 1-0) used an 11-point run that began in the first period and extended into the second period to dominate the Lady Rockets (1-5, 0-2) with a 22-point eruption in the period.
Before the Lady Rockets knew what hit them, they found themselves in an 18-3 deficit before scoring their first basket in the second period with 4:32 to play.
Then with 4:07 to go in the half, the Lady Bulldogs let loose a barrage of 3-pointers started by Jaclyn Montgomery.
Whitworth continued the 3-point outburst with the two of the three 3-pointers of the period.
With the three straight 3-pointers, the Lady Bulldogs extended their lead to 27-5. Whitworth, a freshman who came off the bench in the second period, drained her third 3-pointer just before the end of the first half to put Gleason up 32-12. She led all scorers with a game-high 15 points, all from beyond arc.

The Bulldogs (0-5, 0-1) literally saw a one-man wrecking crew Friday night when they opened up District 13A play against the Rockets.
Gleason found itself down 8-0 early in the game before they tried to make a game out of it.
Ethan Terrell got the scoring started for the Bulldogs with a 2-pointer, followed by a 3-pointer by Alex Hahn. Terrell made the score 10-7 on a put-back from a rebound, but that was as close as the Bulldogs would get to the Rockets thanks to a 15-point run.
The Bulldogs kept pecking away in the third period, using their perimeter shooting.
Finding it hard to get back to score from underneath the basket, the Bulldogs used the 3-pointer to put points on the scoreboard.
Gleason got 3-pointers from Hahn, Avery Orr, Dakota Parsons and Austin Perry in the third period to make it 54-32. Published in The WCP 12.6.11
