Lady Dragons grind out road win over GM

EDINBORO, Pa. –Warren overcame early foul trouble and used a 16-8 third quarter to pick up a 48-40 Region 6 win at General McLane Thursday.

The Lady Dragons had their depth tested as both Teagan Paris and Gracie Ruhlman picked up a pair of early fouls and had to spend most of the first half on the bench. Emma Ruhlman and Riley Childress combined to score 20 of Warren’s 25 second half points.

“It was ugly,” Warren coach Lisa LaVan said. “But a win’s a win, especially on the road. Gracie and Teagan got in foul trouble in the first quarter and we had to dig deep off the bench.”

Paris, coming off a big game against Fort LeBoeuf Tuesday, was held scoreless by the Lancers.

“She sat almost the whole first half,” LaVan said. “It’s hard to crank it up and get back going after that.”

Despite the fouls, Warren (7-4 overall, 2-0 Region 6) held a 13-9 lead after the first quarter. General McLane (3-5, 0-2) cut the deficit to two, 23-21, at the half.

Riley and Taylor Childress each had a 3-point basket in the third quarter, with Emma Ruhlman adding a pair of field goals. All three also went 2-2 from the free throw line in the frame.

“We applied pressure in the second half and got some turnovers,” LaVan said.

Rachel Kaulis scored eight of her team-high 16 points in the fourth quarter, but the Dragons went 5-8 from the free throw line to put the game away.

Emma Ruhlman had a double-double with a game-high 20 points and 11 rebounds to go along with six steals. Riley Childress had 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists and Taylor Childress added 12 points.

The Dragons travel to DuBois Saturday as part of a non-region, boys/girls double-header.
