Lady Lancers fall to Riverside
Riverside (54) Vs. Neshannock (26)
The Neshannock High girls basketball team lost a game and a star player last night.

The Lady Lancers struggled from the start and could not battle back in a 54-26 WPIAL Section 2-AA loss to Riverside at home.

The Lady Panthers (3-1 section, 7-4 overall) took a 14-7 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

Neshannock (3-2, 6-6) lost the services of Courtney Frengel during that quarter, too. According to Lady Lancers coach Greg Huston, Frengel injured her ankle after going in for a layup.

“Courtney got hurt early. We’re not using it as an excuse, but it didn’t help,” Huston said. “We struggled to score.

“No matter how good the defense you play, it doesn’t matter what you do if you don’t put the ball in the hoop.”

Frengel, who has been one of the county’s hottest scorers this season with an average of 17.1 points per game, was taken to Jameson Hospital for x-rays.

“She landed on her ankle pretty hard in the first quarter,” Huston said. “We’re waiting to see how bad it is.”

Ericka Warvell led Neshannock with 11 points.

Amy Gatnarek scored a game-best 15 points for Riverside.
