Belfast — Like a swarm of bees at their hive, the Camden Hills girls basketball team overwhelmed Belfast in the early going — as it outscored the hosts 27-4 in the first quarter — and then maintained a comfortable lead the rest of the way on Thursday night, Jan. 5 en route to a 78-20 win.

The visiting Windjammers clicked on all cylinders, especially with devastating full-court pressure defense and quick transition baskets, as they built the early momentum and lead.
