High school girls’ basketball: Bellefonte can’t reel in Huntingdon

Bellefonte got off to a slow start and couldn’t quite reel in Huntingdon in a 49-39 loss on Friday night.

“The last couple of games we’ve been coming out slow,” Bellefonte assistant coach Adam Gearhart said. “But the girls came out and in the second half we played hard.”

The Lady Red Raiders (10-8) were able to whittle Huntingdon’s advantage down to just five points but a 3-pointer that would’ve cut the deficit to two late rimmed out and Bellefonte wouldn’t get closer.

Jess Book led Bellefonte with 14 points.
