Lady Knights roll to victory

The Eisenhower girls methodically took care of business on Tuesday, beating Tidioute 59-34.

Lydia Giannini had another double-double with 22 points and 18 rebounds, Emiley Wheeler had 14 points and Lilee Renninger 10 points, eight rebounds and three steals.

“A win is a win, we’ll take it,” said Eisenhower coach Mike Logue. “We looked a little tired and fouled a lot, which allowed the game to stay close early.”

Logue praised the work of Renninger, as well as Alexis Courtney.

“They both had great games for us,” Logue said. “They kept us going in that rough stretch we had. This was a total team win tonight.”

Delaney Chase also had a strong game for the Lady Knights (7-9 overall, 5-6 Region 2) with five points, six steals and six assists.

Nakiesha Krouse led Tidioute (1-13, 0-11), pouring in 15 points.

Both teams return to action Thursday – Eisenhower at Region 2 leader Cambridge Springs and Tidioute at Maplewood.

JOHNSONBURG 44, SHEFFIELD 16

Johnsonburg outscored Sheffield 17-0 in the second quarter to salt away what eventually became a 44-16 road win Tuesday.

The Rams were up just three, 7-4, after the first quarter, but the Wolverines were unable to get anything going offensively in the second.

“We made some adjustments on the defense of end of the floor Monday at practice, which I felt gave us a better opportunity to defend the ball, the paint, also clean up the glass,” Sheffield coach Brandon Troutman said. “However, as has been the case all season we fail to control the game when we control the ball. There’s a level of confidence that we don’t have yet. On the offensive end, so we’re struggling.”

The Wolverines stayed with the Rams in the second half as Johnsonburg only outscored Sheffield, 17-12.

Cassidy King had a game-high 15 points to lead a trio of Rams in double figures. Lindsey Kocjancic had 11 and Rylee Casitio 10 in the win.

Marissa Grubbs buried a pair of fourth-quarter 3-pointers and led the Wolverines with six points. Emily Leichtenberger added five.

Troutman said Leichtenberger, Lily Lauffenberger and Alyssa Dunham all had “nice efforts on the defensive glass.”

The Wolverines host Kane Friday.
