RED HILL — The Spring-Ford girls have certainly gotten around so far this season, from Florida to the Philly/New York Challenge, and have taken on a variety of tough opponents. The Rams were back to more familiar surroundings on Tuesday night, however, as they resumed their Pioneer Athletic Conference basketball schedule at Upper Perkiomen against an up-and-coming team that has had its own success this year.
But Spring-Ford got back to its winning ways after dropping a non-league contest on Saturday as the Rams jumped out to an early lead thanks to their usual swarming defense and cruised on to a 73-34 win.
Maggie Locke came off the bench for a game-high 15 points for Spring-Ford (6-0, 9-2 overall) and Sammy Stipa added 12. Stacey Auckland led the Indians (3-2, 7-4) with 12 points and Holly Crossin followed with nine.
