After falling to three of their four conference opponents earlier this season, Madison's girls basketball team bounced back Tuesday to take out Highland 46-39 at home. 

When the Bobcats played Highland in Pocatello in December, they lost 30-22 in a defensive battle. 

"We actually scored some points tonight," said Madison head coach Traci Peterson. "When we were down there we shot the ball really poorly. We shot the ball a lot better tonight." 

The Bobcats scored 15 of those points in the third quarter when they went on a run to take a lead they wouldn't give up.

"We came out the second half and had a couple of kids hit some threes," Peterson said. "We got scoring from some kids we haven't been getting scoring from."

McKell Parkinson scored several of those points and hit 9/10 shots from the free-throw line. 

Sidney Parker, who fractured a bone in her back before the season began, saw the most run she's seen this season in Tuesday's game.

"She makes a difference because she's a good, solid, strong presence," Peterson said. "She helps on the boards. She does some good things for us." 

The Bobcats' next scheduled game will be their first of two against Idaho Falls who they play at home Thursday.
