North Clarion led 15-3 after one quarter before the game would be played fairly evenly the rest of the way with the Wolves holding a 37-33 scoring edge the final three quarters.

“As young as these girls are and the way they handled themselves especially after a rough first quarter speaks volumes of the type of players and kids they are,” said C-L head coach Gus Simpson. “We got contributions from everyone in one way or another. (Julianna) Schwabenbauer didn’t get to play much in our first game, but she came in today and gave us some valuable minutes with a few points and some rebounds. We asked Kalyssa Ferguson to step up in the absence of Hannah Beggs. The way the girls are starting to coach themselves and handle themselves is something I’m very proud of.”

Lily Homan scored 17 points which landed her a spot on the all-tournament team. Akeela Greenawalt also reached double figures with 10 points while Brooke Steinman added eight points.
