Stratford girls basketball grinds past Auburndale

STRATFORD – Stratford survived a defensive battle with Marawood Conference South Division rival Auburndale, prevailing 35-22 in girls basketball action Friday night at Stratford High School.

Stratford held Auburndale to just seven made baskets to end the Apaches’ three-game winning streak.

Stratford is now 6-2 overall and 6-1 in the Marawood South. Auburndale falls to 4-5 and 2-5 in conference play.

Macie Schillinger made six of seven shots and scored 13 points to lead Stratford. The rest of the Tigers were only 8-for-26 from the field, but their defense was stifling in holding down Auburndale.
