COVE — A monstrous turnaround in the second half led by Josie Swartz carried Juniata to a 60-50 win over Susquenita in a Tri-Valley League girls basketball game Tuesday.

“A good win,” Indians coach Kevin Kodish said. “I thought the girls as a unit stepped up big time on defense in the second half.’

After only scoring six points in the first half, Swartz went on to score 22 points in the third and fourth quarters to finish with a game-high 28 points.

“She was incredible especially in the fourth quarter,” Kodish said.

Susquenita won the JV game 36-19 with Halee Decker and Katey Martin scoring five points each for the Indians.

Juniata (9-1, 4-0) travels to cross-county rival East Juniata Friday.
