CAMERON COUNTY 59, OSWAYO VALLEY 27
EMPORIUM, Pa. – Mallory McKimm tied the Cameron County girls’ basketball record with seven 3-pointers on her way to a career-high 25 points, as the Lady Raiders rolled past visiting Oswayo Valley, 59-27, in NTL action.
McKimm also had five steals, as did Kaelee Bresslin, who added 20 points.
On Senior Night in Emporium, Cameron County’s lone senior Eliza Farabaugh led the team with seven rebounds.
Jadyn Brabham paced Oswayo Valley with 15 points.
PORT ALLEGANY 72, GALETON 35
PORT ALLEGANY, Pa. – Cailey Barnett scored 23 points, grabbed seven rebounds, handed out five assists and came away with five steals, as Port Allegany beat visiting Galeton, 72-35, in NTL action.
The win coupled with Redbank Valley’s 44-43 loss to Brockway keeps the Lady Gators hopes of the top seed in the District 9 Class 2A playoffs alive. In order to gain the No. 1 spot, Port Allegany will need to win its final two games and hope Redbank Valley loses to Moniteau Friday. With both teams currently at five losses and having not played each other, the first tiebreaker to come into play would be record vs. common opponents. Both teams played Mercer with Redbank Valley beating Mercer and Port Allegany losing to Mercer.
Bree Garzell added 16 points, seven rebounds and three assists for the Lady Gators, while Evin Stauffer scored eight points and Gracie Archer chipped in five points and four steals.
For Galeton, Cara Parsell had 11 points and nine rebounds, Lauren Sauley added nine points, nine rebounds and two steals and Alli Macensky had nine points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots.
