SALT LAKE CITY - Senior Kayla Eilertson scored 12 points, senior Abby Toller added 11 and Bonneville cruised past Murray 56-35 in the first round of the 4-A girls basketball playoffs Monday at Salt Lake Community College.

The top seed from Region 5 led 26-15 at halftime before running its lead to as many as 25 in the third quarter and 28 in the fourth.

"We saw it in the second game with Roy from our region; they gave Timpanogos a lot of trouble and that was a four against a one-seed," Bonneville coach Mike Russell said. "So we just said seed doesn't matter - record doesn't matter - and they understand that."

Sophomore Baylee Leiter led all scorers with 14 for Murray.
