Girls basketball: Clearfield rolls to win at Bald Eagle Area

Depleated by injuries, Bald Eagle Area’s small roster ran out of gas in the closing minutes of its girls’ basketball game Tuesday night.

The Lady Eagles saw a three-point lead to start the fourth quarter turn into a 39-32 loss to Clearfield after scoring only four points in the final eight minutes.

BEA attempted only nine field goals in the final period and was 0-for-7 from the foul line in the fnal minutes.

“We didn’t shoot the ball,” Lady Eagles coach Troy Butterworth said. “We had some tired legs. We’ve got a couple hurt players so my girls played almost the entire game. We didn’t have a very deep bench tonight.

Logan Fischer’s 12 points and four assists led BEA (0-4), while Ellie Chambers grabbed 10 rebounds and Haylee Giedroc had five steals and four assists.
