Tyrone handles B-A girls in basketball

The Bellwood-Antis girls junior high basketball team traveled to Tyrone on Monday afternoon. The Lady Eagles defeated Bellwood-Antis 33-27 for their second straight win, after opening the season with seven straight defeats.
Paris Harden led the Tyrone girls with a game-high 10 points and Teanna Kobuck and Crystal Waite added seven points each in a balanced scoring attack for the Lady Eagles (2-7).
Emily Derr scored eight points to lead the Lady Blue Devils (5-6), who fall below the .500 mark for the first time in the season, and Alycia Hippo added seven points.
The Lady Eagles also won the B-game 22-13, behind a seven-point effort by Brooke Romano.
Karissa Collier, Ashley Hamer and Emily Crook each scored four points for Bellwood-Antis.
“We were able to have a really balanced scoring effort,” said Tyrone coach Kerry Naylor. “Bellwood-Antis tried to pressure us and limit our top scorer Rachel Emigh. Rachel did score five points, but in breaking Bellwood’s press and running our offense, she still led the team to the win, without scoring much. Somebody else had to step up and score and that was what Paris and Teanna and Crystal were able to do. This was the most balanced we have been in any of our games this year.”
Tyrone is at Philipsburg-Osceola this afternoon for a game with the Lady Mounties, while Bellwood-Antis travels to Mount Union on Thursday for a 4 p.m. start.
