Wilmington (50) Vs. Sharpsville (39)
Jan 10, 2014
The visiting Lady Greyhounds trailed for much of the game, but used a big fourth quarter to pull out the District 10, Region 2-AA victory.

Wilmington (3-1, 9-3), who trailed 23-16 at halftime, managed to pull to within 30-29 entering the final quarter. The Lady ’Hounds proceeded to outscore the Blue Darlings 21-9 over the final eight minutes of the game.

“We actually almost doubled our points from the first half in the third quarter,” Wilmington coach Brandy Sanford said. “I gave them an earful at halftime and then left the locker room. I told them had find something amongst themselves that would work in the second half.

“In the fourth quarter, we were really able to step and play our style of basketball. At that point, we were able to pull together, step up and get some key steals and key buckets to finish out the game.”

Alanna Elliott led Wilmington with a team-high 13 points, while Tessa Sikora tossed in 12.

“It was a struggle, but in the end, all that matters is that we won,” Sanford said. “Sharpsville came out on a roll and we were still on our heels from our loss (Wednesday). We weren’t shell-shocked, but we were still licking our wounds.”
