HAZLETON ä The Mifflin County girlsá basketball team could not overcome a slow start in its season opener, falling to Lake Lehman 67-32 at the Hazleton Tip-Off Tournament.

The Huskies fell behind by double digits early. Lake Lehman had an insurmountable lead at the half.

âA bunch of young kids were playing their first game tonight and we looked like it,ã Mifflin County coach Roger Herto said. âLake-Lehman had way too much experience and way too much size for us. They deflected a lot of passes and we couldnát get things going well. We got behind by a bunch early.ã

The best stretch for Mifflin County came in the fourth quarter, when Marissa Gingrich knocked down a pair of 3-pointers with Emma Weaver adding another.

âThe positive thing from the game is that we didnát hang our heads,ã Herto said. âWe just kept playing and got better as the game went on. A lot of kids logged their first varsity minutes and meaningful minutes in a game tonight. Lake Lehman was just way too much for us.ã

Weaver led the way for the Huskies, connecting on three shots from beyond the arc. Brianna Bodtorf scored eight points while Gingrich added six.

Mifflin County returns to action today, as the Huskies will face Williamsport at 6 p.m. to finish the Hazleton Tip-Off Tournament.

âTomorrow we are going to see a Williamsport team that likes to press,ã Herto said. âWe need to take care of the basketball and rebound. Williamsport is a big team as well and they will hit the glass.ã
