The Chelsea boys and girls basketball teams each opened the season with wins Thursday night, knocking off visiting Vestavia Hills in a pair of thrilling contests.

Girls: Chelsea 63, Vestavia Hills 58 (OT)

The varsity girls opened the evening slate with a 63-58 overtime victory.

Sophomore Michaella Edwards had a huge night, scoring 32 points in the victory. The game was tight throughout, with the score tied at 22 at the end of the first half, and knotted at 49 at the end of regulation.

Chelsea, though, put together a 9-0 run to open the overtime period and was able to hold off the Rebels from there.

In addition to Edwards’ big night, Suzanne Ridgeway had 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Hope Richard contributed 10 points to go along with 15 rebounds to finish with a double-double.
