LADY COUGARS ARE still keeping up the pressure on Pinelands.

Toni Atherley finished a handful of assists shy of a triple-double as Lady Cougars blew out Burger King Clapham Bulls 62-30 during Thursday’s No.1 Beauty Supplies and Beauty Exchange Women’s basketball league.

Playing in Clapham, the national captain dropped 20 points, 12 rebounds and five assists to help Cougars improve to a 7-1 record – just one game behind unbeaten leaders and defending champs Preferred Insurance Brokers Pinelands (8-0).

The contest was never close either, as Cougars led from start to finish after scoring 12 of the game’s first 13 points while holding Bulls to just one point for the opening seven minutes on their own home court. (JM)
