Wilmington girls fall to Mercer
Mercer (48) Vs. Wilmington (40)
Feb 19, 2010
A great first half turned into a sour second half for the Wilmington High girls basketball team.
The Lady Greyhounds surrendered a nine-point halftime lead in losing to host Mercer, 48-40, in a District 10, Region 2-AA game last night.
“We couldn’t score the last period and couldn’t stop them,” Wilmington coach Brian Turk said. “We came out cold in the second half and they pressured us.”
Turk said the Lady ’Hounds (6-5 region, 13-8 overall), who sit in a tie with Mercer for third place, still have a chance for the District 10 playoffs, which take the top teams and a possible third squad from each region.
Wilmington won’t know if it makes the playoffs or not until after its season finale against second-place Sharpsville (6-2, 12-8) at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow.
“We still have hope,” Turk said. “It just makes the road a little tougher.”
The Lady ’Hounds committed 13 turnovers in the second half and 22 for the game.
Julie Burns scored 10 points and Stephanie Kish added eight for Wilmington.
Megan Frydrych scored 12 points to lead Mercer (6-5, 12-10).
