DUBOIS 47, ST. MARYS 45
DUBOIS, Pa. – Ashley Hallowell dominated St. Marys with 26 points and 15 rebounds to lead DuBois to a 47-45 win over the visiting Lady Dutch in D9 League action.
Hallowell was strong in the first and fourth quarters scoring a combined 20 points in those two frames including 11 in the fourth quarter, but the middle two quarters were really the difference for DuBois. The Lady Beavers outscored St. Marys 19-9 in those two frames including 13-5 in the second quarter to take a 26-21 halftime lead.
Hallowell’s biggest rebound came with eight seconds left and DuBois up 46-45. Chelsea DeSalve, who finished with eight points, missed a pair of free throws but Hallowell collected the rebound and was fouled. She then hit one of two to put DuBois up two.
Following a St. Marys timeout, DuBois’ defense came away with a steal to seal the victory.
