Union girls top Rochester
Union (45) Vs. Rochester (36)
Jan 15, 2013
Union closed the first half of section play in strong fashion.

Marissa Heaney banked in a 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter to give the Lady Scots the lead for good in a Section 1-A home win over Rochester. Heaney’s bucket put Union up, 36-33.

Union (5-1, 8-4) trailed 21-19 at halftime after being outscored 14-4 in the second quarter. The Lady Scots knotted the count at 31 heading to the fourth frame.

“We stuck with our gameplan,” Union coach Brian Fadden said. “We kept the floor spread and we had to handle their physical toughness; we played stronger in the second half.”

The win maintains the Lady Scots’ sole possession hold on second place as the first half of section play completed. Quigley Catholic (6-0, 9-4), which is ranked No. 5 in the WPIAL in Class A by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, sits alone in first place.

“We were very satisfied with our start in section,” Fadden said. “We know it’s very important to win all of our home games and we did that the first time through.

“We got some nice road wins and I’m very happy with where we are right now.”

Miranda Heaney, Marissa’s sister, led Union with 20 points. Marissa Heaney chipped in with 11.

Jamie Simon supplied 13 points to lead the Lady Rams (3-3, 6-7).
