TYRONE — Bald Eagle Area’s Mary Pillot hit two free throws with 15 seconds remaining to help the Lady Eagles defeat Tyrone 54-50 on Friday.
Pillot led BEA’s balanced offense with 17 points. Marissa Ward scored 16, Lexi Josefik had nine and Kaitlyn Miller added seven. Ward also grabbed 18 rebounds and Josefik had five assists.
Nicole Gripp led Tyrone with 25 points.
“It was a nice win against a good team,” said BEA coach Troy Butterworth, whose team improved to 9-1. “They are well-coached and they have some, good tough players. Every time they made a run to cut it to one or two, we made a couple of big buckets to get the lead back up.”
