Neshannock falls to Poland
Poland (48) Vs. Neshannock (44)
Dec 17, 2012
The Lady Lancers’ comeback fell short in a nonsection loss to Poland (Ohio).

Neshannock (1-4) trailed 13-4 early, but responded with a 15-0 run. The Lady Lancers settled for a 28-26 halftime advantage.

The Lady Bulldogs (7-0) opened the second half with a 10-2 run. Neshannock’s Tayler Grybowski and Alexandra Fischer drained field goals to cut the deficit to 45-44 with a minute to play.

Neshannock turned the ball over 30 times.

“The lead at halftime was good, but the third quarter wasn’t,” Lady Lancers coach Luann Grybowski said. “We only scored six points in that quarter and a lot of their points that quarter came off our turnovers.

“We have to cut those back.”

Poland split a pair of foul shots with 18 seconds left for a 46-44 lead. The Lady Lancers were whistled for a charge on their next possession and the Lady Bulldogs sealed the win with a pair of foul shots on the other end.

Neshannock was 15 of 51 from the floor and 11 of 11 from the foul line.

“We did some good things. Our offense is a little bit out of sync,” Luann Grybowski said. “We’re not as crisp as I’d like us to be.

“I’m just not happy with the turnovers and the amount of turnovers. I have to take a look at what we’re doing and try something different. The foul shooting was a plus for us, though.”

Madison McHale came off the bench to lead all scorers, bucketing 15 markers for the Lady Lancers. McHale, who competed in her second game since moving back into the district, was 6 of 12 from the field with seven rebounds and three steals.

Last year, McHale ranked second in the county in scoring at 17.9 points a game. Only New Castle’s Kaylynn Waters (25.5) averaged more.

“She’s a great addition to our team. It’s nice to have her back,” Grybowski said. “She’s a player, there’s no doubt about that.”

Alexandra Fischer chipped in with 10 markers and seven rebounds for the guests. Tayler Grybowski, the coach’s daughter, pulled down seven rebounds to go along with four points, four assists, four blocks and three steals.
