Laurel girls rout Shenango
Laurel (72) Vs. Shenango (35)
Dec 16, 2011
Laurel coach Jessica Shevitz said her Lady Spartans wanted to let teams in Section 2-AA that they’re legitimate this year.

They made their point against Shenango, outscoring the Lady Wildcats 43-23 in the first half and cruising to victory.

“We wanted to come out and make a statement,” Shevitz said. “Nobody talks about Laurel, and that’s fine, it’s OK to be the underdog, but we wanted to make a statement tonight that we’re out to win. We’re not playing not to lose, we’re playing to win, and we’re going to come out and get after teams when we can.”

Several Lady Spartans (1-0, 2-1) were heard from, especially Marisa Wallas, who scored a game-high 19 points and snatched 11 steals. Ellen Shaffer added 16 points and 11 rebounds. Laurel’s pressure defense caused 23 steals and was the main reason for its first-half lead.

“We just played it (the press) well tonight,” Shevitz said. “The passes were good after we some teals, and you can see the chemistry is coming.”

Amanda Herb led Shenango (0-1, 1-3) with 11 points.
