Mifflin County cruises to second win in as many days against Carlisle

From staff reports

CARLISLE — The Mifflin County girls basketball team got off to a hot start and Marissa Gingrich and Brianna Bodtorf anchored the offense, combining for 33 points in the Huskies’ 55-37 win over Carlisle in a Mid-Penn Commonwealth contest on Tuesday night.

“I thought that the team did a good job tonight of just taking care of business,” Huskies’ coach Roger Herto said. “This is the second of three straight games, three nights in a row. Long bus trip to Carlisle. Hit a couple threes right out of the shoot with Gingrich.

“I thought we played a really good solid team-game,” he continued. “We had two kids on the other team that we wanted to try to stop and for the most part we took their two scorers out of there. It was just nice to get the win. We really need all three and tomorrow night we head to Chambersburg and hopefully we can put a solid effort together there.”

The Huskies hit the road for their third road contest in three games when they face Chambersburg.

Mifflin County won the JV game 39-30 with Emma Weaver leading the Huskies with 14 points.
