GULFPORT -- Clearwater blew through Boca Ciega on Saturday for a 76-47 win in the Pinellas County Athletic Conference girl's basketball championship.

Tornadoes center Dominique Redding was the top scorer with 21. Pirates forward Kelcey Roegiers-Jensen scored 16.

"It really wasn't that hard," Redding said. "If (Roegiers-Jensen's) team had a little more firepower it would have been more fun."

Redding blocked two of Roegiers-Jensen's shots.

"Tonight is a celebration for us," Tornadoes coach Tom Shaneyfelt said.

The previous time the teams met was in the championship game of the Hooters Tournament on December 29. The Tornadoes blew the Pirates away in that game 71-16.

"We've played (Boca Ciega) before and knew that they were not all that strong," Tornadoes guard Kasie Muchler said. "But we had to play our game and we couldn't let up, just like if it was Largo or Seminole."

Muchler finished with 10 points but gave the Tornadoes a scare when she dove for a loose ball and collided with two other players. She lay on the floor for several minutes before walking to the bench.
