Girl's basketball: Bellefonte stuns Newport 44-28

BELLEFONTE – Wins have been hard to come by this season for the Bellefonte Lady Raiders. So when they beat Newport on Thursday 44-28, a team that bested them earlier this season, coach Roger Herto learned something about his players.

“When we played this team the first time they beat us by 10,” said Herto, whose team entered the game with just one win.” “So for us to show up tonight; this team showed me that they haven’t give up on themselves.”

Bellefonte used a team effort on offense and defense to topple the Buffaloes.

Freshman Jess Book and sophomore Lexi Wetzler led all scorers with eight points. The Lady Raiders also got six points apiece from freshman Lea McCartney and sophomore Ally Steen.
