Duo leads Juniata to TVL victory

From staff reports

MILLERSBURG — Josie Swartz scored 20 points and Olivia Clark tacked on another 15 and Juniata defeated Millersburg, 54-31, in Tri-Valley League girls basketball Wednesday.

Swartz had four 3-pointers in the contest which was more than everybody from both teams combined. She also went 4-for-6 from the charity stripe.

Clark had six field goals to go along with three free throws in the contest.

“We got off to a strong first quarter before a subpar effort in the second period,” Juniata coach Kevin Kodish said. “I was very pleased with how we came out in the second half. We picked up the defensive intensity in the third period.”

Juniata (3-0) is back in action tonight as it travels to Jersey Shore.

WILLOW HILL — Laiken Turner, Keairra Worthy and Karrigan Woodward combined for 46 points and Mount Union was able to get away with a 59-54 win over Fannett-Metal in a non-league girls basketball game.

Turner finished a game-high 18 points, scoring the Trojans’ lone 3-pointer and going a perfect 5-for-5 at the free-throw line. Worthy and Woodward combined for 13 field goals in the contest.

“We struggled coming out in the first half,” Mount Union coach Alix Sellers said. “Ally Hoffmann was able to drive through our defense and her teammates were able to finish off the dish. However, in the third we came alive with our inside game and sat back in a zone, taking away their driving game.”

Mount Union (2-1) travels to Glendale on Friday.

Wrestling

Juniata 47, Halifax 33

HALIFAX — Juniata had great stretches in the beginning and end of its Tri-Valley wrestling match to take matters, 47-33, over Halifax Wednesday night.

Tanson Miller (120 pounds), Jacob Gilson (126) and Tanner Weiand (138) helped the Indians take three of the first four matches before Christian Benner (195), Garrett Gabel (220) and Evan Renninger (285) rallied for three straight wins.

Halifax won the last two matches, but it was too late as the Indians had control of matters.

Juniata hosts Newport Dec. 20.
