Girls’ basketball

Penns Valley rallies for comeback win

HUNTINGDON After getting into foul trouble early and falling behind by double digits, the Penns Valley girls’ basketball team rallied Wednesday night to stun Huntingdon for a 44-37 win.

The Lady Rams trailed 15-4 after the first quarter and 22-14 at halftime.

“I was proud of our kids that we didn’t panic,” Penns Valley coach Karen McCaffrey said. “We went into halftime, and they were confident.”

Penns Valley switched from man to a 2-3 zone after the first quarter and slowed the game down. The strategy worked; the Lady Rams outscored their opponent 40-22 from that point on.

Jordan Andrus led Penns Valley by scoring 11 of her team-high 13 points in the fourth quarter. Hannah Montminy added 11 points in the winning effort.

The Lady Rams (8-1) will next take on Clearfield on Friday.

P-O slips past SJCA

BOALSBURG Philipsburg-Osceola’s Halle Herrington saved her best for the last quarter, as she scored 13 of her game-high 31 points in the fourth quarter to lead her team past St. Joseph’s 57-56.

The Lady Mounties led 30-17 at halftime, but St. Joseph’s clawed its way back. Junior Denaya Poston-Cooper paced the Lady Wolves with 17 points.

Loryn Hughes added 10 points for P-O in the victory.

Tyrone thumps Bellefonte
