New Brighton (58) Vs. Shenango (28)
Dec 20, 2011
Missed chances cost Shenango in more ways than one in a Section 2-AA battle.

The Lady Wildcats committed 24 turnovers and made just 16 of 38 foul shots. To make matters worse, New Brighton took advantage of the Shenango miscues.

“We had 24 turnovers, 10 in the first half right off the bat and we just couldn’t get started in the first period,” Lady Wildcats coach Brian Turk said. “They’re a good team — they created a lot of turnovers and made a lot of layups — but that’s where they got their field goals, is off our missed opportunities.”

Jenna Petrucci led Shenango (0-2, 1-4) with nine points, while Amanda Herb added a team-high 12 rebounds. New Brighton (2-0, 4-0), which took an 18-3 first-quarter lead, received a game-high 16 points from Alexis Aspiotes, while Kiyonna McFrazier added 15.

Shenango missed 18 free throws by halftime, when they trailed, 28-12.

“We make our free throws and this is a different ballgame,” Turk said.
