GIRLS

Brookville 44,

Bradford 26

BROOKVILLE — Brookville’s shooting led it to a win over Bradford.

Alayna Haight scored a game high 17 points to lead Brookville. She hit four 3-pointers on the night to help space the floor and balance the Brookville offense. That space allowed Jordan Cook to do damage down low. She had 12 points for the Lady Raiders and scored 10 points in the second half, when Brookville closed the door.

Alanna Benson led Bradford with 11 points. She had five points in the third quarter when the Lady Owls made a push.

Bradford did a good job making their free throws, taking advantage of their trips to the line. But a shortened roster meant only four players scored, which hurt the team’s bottom line.

“Short handed due to Covid,” said Bradford head coach Tony Richards. “We had our chances though. It was close the entire way, we were in striking distance until about six minutes to go. Lead was under 10 (points). Proud of my kids. The effort was there, at times the ball didn’t fall for us.”

Port Allegany 43, Johnsonburg 35

PORT ALLEGANY — Port Allegany’s big second half propelled it to a non-conference win over Johnsonburg.

Kaleigha Dowell and Ella Moses led Port with a combined 33 points. Dowell was unstoppable from long-range, hitting five 3-pointers on the way to 17 points. Moses did her damage closer to the net, scoring 16 points and earning a double-double with 10 rebounds, as well as four steals. Evin Stauffer had five boards, four points, five assists and four steals to contribute on offense and defense.

Kaci Stelene was excellent for Jburg scoring a team-high 16 points. She had 10 in the first half as Jburg built an early lead.

“Honestly, we just made shots,” said Port head coach Jamie Evens. “It was a sloppy game both ways. Both teams had over 20 turnovers… Proud of our girls pulling it out. We are learning how to win the close ones and overcome mistakes… Nice to get some redemption from our loss to them (Jburg) earlier in the year.”
