Everything you missed in high school sports — and isn’t listed elsewhere in the CDT — from Friday:

Girls’ basketball

State College cruises to win

SIDMAN Maya Bokunewicz and Elizabeth Czekaj combined to score more than half of the State College girls’ basketball team’s points in the 55-36 win Friday over Forest Hills in the season opener.

Bokunewicz led both teams with 15 points, while Czekaj added 14. Lexi Risha and Kelsey Love also netted eight points apiece in the winning effort.

State College will next take on Bishop Guilfoyle on Saturday.

2nd quarter dooms Bellefonte

MIFFLINTOWN The Lady Red Raiders started off hot, but a slow second quarter doomed them in a 42-37 loss to East Juniata on the road.

Bellefonte led 17-9 after the first quarter — but East Juniata’s 13-2 run in the second quarter gave it the momentum.

The Raiders’ Maddie Steiner finished with a game-high 20 points in the loss. Bellefonte will next take on Juniata on Saturday.

SJCA dominates Grace Prep

BOALSBURG Behind 18 points from Selena Mann, St. Joseph’s made quick work of Grace Prep by a score of 63-2.

Sarah Zubler scored Prep’s only points on a second-quarter field goal.

Denaya Cooper added 10 points and Reign Scott had nine points in the victory.

Boys’ basketball

Rams win opener

SPRING MILLS Behind Logan Snyder’s 11 points and Matthew Tobias’ 12 points, the Penns Valley boys’ basketball team rallied from a first-quarter deficit to beat Mifflinburg 43-32 Friday night.

The Rams trailed 8-4 after the first quarter but rallied with a 14-5 run in the second quarter. Mifflinburg tried to mount a comeback late in the game — but Penns Valley stopped it short.

“I thought the guys played a real solid game,” PV coach Terry Glunt said, referring to his team. “They made some clutch shots at the end when Mifflinburg came back.”

The Rams will next take on St. Joseph’s at 7 p.m. Monday.

P-O starts strong

PHILIPSBURG The Mounties’ Marcus Wisor finished with a game-high 22 points to lead his team to a 58-47 win over Moshannon Valley.

Carson Jones added 12 points, while Ryan Whitehead had nine. P-O used a 19-2 run in the second quarter to give the team a comfortable 19-point lead at halftime.

The Mounties will next take on Tyrone on Tuesday.

Bellefonte falls

MILL HALL Caleb Rockey scored a team-high 19 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Red Raiders fell 65-45 to Central Mountain.

Bellefonte was outscored in every quarter, as it just couldn’t match Central Mountain’s offense. The Wildcats’ Collin Jones finished with a game-high 25 points.
