Lady ’Canes get section win
New Castle (51) Vs. Ambridge (45)
Dec 20, 2013
The host Lady ’Canes used their defense to capture their first Section 2-AAA win of the year.

“We struggled defensively in our last game against West Allegheny,” New Castle coach Scott Dibble said. “We really focused on our defense in practice this week. I was happy with the difference tonight. We defended really well as a team and need to continue to do that to be successful.”

New Castle (1-2, 2-4) trailed 38-35 entering the fourth quarter and pulled out the win by outscoring Ambridge (0-2, 3-2) 16-7 in the final period. Darrian Johnson nailed a handful of free throws in the fourth quarter for the Lady ’Canes.

“We were more patient offensively,” Dibble said. “Once we got the lead, it came down to a free-throw shooting contest. We got them into the bonus and took advantage of it. Darrian made some big free throws before she fouled out.”

Johnson led New Castle with a game-high 30 points, while Velvet Wade tacked on 11.
