WASHINGTON TERRACE -- The matchup of the Royals' state 4-A leading offense (56.20 points per game) versus a Bonneville defense allowing just 36.47 ppg -- No. 2 in the 4-A ranks by only .04 -- was a no-contest.
Despite a venue change Thursday, the league-leading Lakers spanked Roy High 54-22 to remain undefeated at Region 5's midpoint.
If Bonneville (13-3 overall, 5-0 league) is to capture its first league girls basketball title since the 2003-04 season, it will have to do it away from home. The Lakers, who swept their seventh consecutive victory and are 8-2 spanning their last 10 games, play four of their final five on the road.
"We're 5-0 and we have a target on our backs," Bonneville senior combo forward McKinlee Westmoreland said. "We're going to have to come out stronger than ever, and we're all willing to do whatever it takes. We all really want that Region 5 title."
Westmoreland, who was averaging 7.47 points, scored a game-high 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting with a team-high seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. It was her second straight 16-point game for the Lakers, who shot 51.1 percent (23-of-45) -- 30.0 percent (3-of-10) from 3-point range -- outrebounded Roy 36-22 and committed 21 turnovers.
"I haven't been looking to score more," said the 18-year-old Westmoreland. "Usually, when I try not to score I score more. I have been playing hard and just letting things go."
Emilie Volk had 10 points, going 5-of-7 from the floor, with five boards, five assists and two steals and Kayla Eilertson tossed in nine points with two rebounds and two blocked shots. Sophomore point guard Cortney Porter had seven points, including two 3-pointers, eight assists, two boards and five steals for Bonneville, which rang up 19 assists and swiped 11 steals.
"We're taking it one game at a time," Westmoreland said. "We let go of the Mountain Crest win, as crazy as it was, and focused on Roy. I found out in third period -- about 12:30 p.m. -- the game was going to be here. I was ready to play regardless where the game was; we were all ready."
Jordynn Barrera scored a team-high 11 points for the Royals (8-8, 1-4), who were held to a season-low point total on 18.9 percent shooting (7-of-37). Roy was a bone-chilling .05 percent (1-of-20) on 3-point attempts with only two assists and 22 turnovers.
Bryce Mitchell, who came in with a state-leading 38 3s, had a season-low three points for the Royals, 4-6 in their last 10 games.
