Lady Dragons drop Region 6 road contest at Harbor Creek

HARBOR CREEK – A grueling schedule continued for the Warren Lady Dragons on Friday, and they just ran out of steam on the road at Harbor Creek.

Warren trailed just 23-22 early in the third quarter, but Harbor Creek rattled off 31 of the game’s final 33 points en route to a 54-24 Region 6 win.

“We just ran out of gas,” said Warren coach Lisa LaVan.

Margo Loutzenhiser scored 15 points for Warren, while Ali Benim had a game-high 20 for Harbor Creek (4-1 overall, 1-0 Region 6).

Rachel Wilson also had seven rebounds for Warren (1-5, 0-2).

The Lady Dragons will now get a bit of a break before they play Canon-McMillan on Thursday (4 p.m.) and Fairmont (WV) on Friday (6 p.m.) at the Cal U. Christmas Tournament.

“They can rest a little bit and we can get a couple of practices in and go to work down there at Cal,” LaVan said. ” That sure isn’t going to be easy. We’ll make some adjustments – we know we have some things we have to work.”

The JV team fell 34-26. Kelsey Stuart had 13 points, Ceci Citro six and Teagan Paris five.

The JVs will play Canon-Mac at 6 on Thursday and Obama Academy at 4 on Friday.

RIDGWAY 53,

SHEFFIELD 10

RIDGWAY – After coming out with a 4-0 lead, Sheffield gave up 31 straight points as Ridgway cruised to a 53-10 win over the Lady Wolverines.

“Until we take pride in our work, we’ll struggle,” said Sheffield coach Brandon Troutman. “We seem to have reverted back to our ways of shying away from competition, and not digging deep when times get tough, that’s on everyone of us in the gym, obviously, we must fix this to be successful.”

Sheffield takes on Youngsville at Erie Insurance Arena this afternoon.

Ridgway was also victorious in JV play, 56-7

CRANBERRY 50,

EISENHOWER 21

CRANBERRY – Cranberry controlled the game from the opening tip-off and rolled to a 50-21 win over Eisenhower Thursday.

“We struggled right from the get go,” said Eisenhower coach Mike Logue. “We could not match their intensity.”

Logue said Eisenhower intentionally scheduled tough opponents to help the young team learn what it takes to win.

“(We) have to understand that if we want to be successful we have to put forth the effort every time we step on the court,” he said.

Lydia Giannini led the Knights with eight points and 10 rebounds.

“Lydia is using her size to gain rebounds and score,” Logue said.

The Knights will participate in the Kane Tournament Wednesday. The junior varsity starts at 3 p.m. with the varsity tipping-off against Clarion at 6 p.m.
