Trojans get home ICC victory

MOUNT UNION — An offensive surge in the second half carried Mount Union past Williamsburg 44-38 in an Inter-County Conference girls basketball game Friday.

“The girls were able to come out as a team tonight for a strong team effort against the Lady Pirates,” Trojans coach Alix Sellers said. “We were able to beat the offensively break their press and gain transition baskets. Our press caused them to have turnovers and lose possession of the ball.”

The Trojans were down by two going into the second half before they outscored the Blue Pirates, 27-16, to pull ahead for the victory.

Karrigan Woodward led Mount Union with 18 points.

“Our guards were able to pound it into the inside and Woodward and Worthy did a fantastic job playing off of each other,” Sellers said.

The Trojans lost in the JV game 37-9 with the high scorer being Raylee Beatty who scored three points.

Mount Union( 4-7, 2-3) travels to Glendale Tuesday.

Juniata 54, Halifax 47

HALIFAX — Juniata was able to hold off a late charging Halifax in its 54-47 Tri-Valley League girls basketball victory Friday.

“It was a very physical game, and we were able to hang in there and secure the win,” Indians coach Kevin Kodish said.

The Indians were led by Chloe Zendt who scored 18 points for the game before fouling out. Keeping players on the court was an issue for the Indians as Malin Kint also fouled out.

“Chloe Zendt had a monster game for us before fouling out late in the game,” Kodish said. “We lost one player to an injury and two players to fouls, so we had to hang on tight to secure the victory.”
