Shenango earns win, looks toward stretch run
Shenango (76) Vs. Union (16)
Jan 27, 2016
The Shenango High girls team needed to refocus.

The Lady Wildcats got the opportunity to do so Wednesday night and never looked back.

Visiting Shenango took a 76-16 victory over nonsection opponent Union as the Lady Wildcats gear up for a three-game stretch that will determine if they clinch the fourth and final WPIAL Section 1-AA playoff berth.

Shenango (10-8) had an opportunity to secure the bid Monday night but was thwarted in a loss to Laurel.

“Any time that you do lose a game like that, you’re shaken,” Shenango coach Jason Rankin said. “It was important for us to get out early. We realize that the next three games are section games and we need to win at least one. So it was good to get a good start tonight.”

Union (2-16) kept it close in the opening eight minutes, only trailing by seven points. Shenango quickly turned up its offense and scored a combined 46 points in the second and third quarters.

Samantha Seaburn paced the Lady Wildcats with 20 points and a season-high 19 rebounds, followed by Angelina Sibeto’s 14-point, six-assist performance and Jacqui Baker’s 10-point showing.

Overall, Shenango had 10 players score a basket, with seven of them scoring five or more points.

“In this day and age, you can’t hide anything,” Rankin said. “If you only have a couple options, teams can find a way to stop them.”

Union was led by Skylar Thompson with nine points in the loss.
