RICHMOND — Richmond High School forward Jamie Plummer needed seven points to eclipse 1,000 career points, with East-West Conference foe Buckfield the opponent on Tuesday.

In front of a big home crowd, Plummer made quick work of her goal, getting the 1,000th point off an assist from Noell Acord with 39 seconds remaining in the first quarter as Richmond rolled to a 48-9 victory.

“We stopped the game and presented her with the game ball,” said Richmond coach Molly Bishop, whose Bobcats improved to 6-2 and hosts Vinalhaven for two weekend games beginning on Friday. “It’s remarkable to get to 1,000. All the things that can go wrong can keep a player from getting to that mark.

“All the players that have been around her helped Jamie to get to this point. We’ve been fortunate to get deep into the playoffs, giving us an extra seven or eight games during Jamie’s career. She’s handled all that stuff so well and is just a classy young lady.

“She would give back every point for a state championship. She wanted to get the game going again.”

Plummer led Richmond with 21 points, 11 rebounds and seven steals, with Ciarra Lancaster adding eight points. Acord finished with five assists.

Buckfield (2-6), which trailed 16-2, 28-2 and 42-6 at the quarter breaks, received five points from Arrabine Dunn.
