Ellwood girls end losing streak at Freedom
Ellwood City (61) Vs. Freedom (50)
The Ellwood City Lincoln girls basketball team wasn’t about to let this one get away.

The Lady Wolverines ended a four-game slide by pulling away from Freedom in the third quarter of a nonsection showdown for a 61-50 road victory last night.

Three players scored at least 15 points for Ellwood City (6-14), which rebounded from a bad second quarter by outscoring the Lady Bulldogs, 20-14, in the third.

“We came out very strong,” Lady Wolverines coach Jolene Servick said. “We were up 12-0 at one point. They hit four 3-pointers in the second quarter, and then we kind of picked it up in the third quarter.

“We basically told them at halftime that they had two girls scoring for them — 18 of their 21 points in the first half came from two people — so we told them to focus on them. We picked up a lot of steals after that and we got some easy layups.”

Angela McCowin had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while Kara Sainato scored a game-high 21 points (nine in the third quarter), including four 3-pointers. Asia Borders provided 15 points (seven in the third) and three assists.

“McCowin had a very good all-around game,” Servick said. “She scored in every quarter. And Kara Sainato started taking the ball to the hoop and creating things for herself and her teammates. That was big for her.”

Maddie Lewis paced Freedom (3-14) with 15 points.
