Lady Lancers' comeback falls short
Beaver Falls (52) Vs. Neshannock (48)
Jan 11, 2011
A wild comeback by Neshannock fell a few points short in a Section 2-AA loss to Beaver Falls.

The Lady Tigers were up, 27-16, at halftime, but the Lady Lancers (3-1, 9-2) came roaring back and cut the lead to five late in the fourth quarter.

Two controversial calls in the final minutes went the way of the Lady Tigers (4-0, 7-4). One came on what appeared to be a backcourt violation, according to Neshannock coach Luann Grybowski. The next time down the court, Grybowski thought Beaver Falls traveled, but again, no call was made.

“They lost possession of the ball as they were crossing the backcourt to the frontcourt,” she said. “One of their kids dove, slapped the ball into the frontcourt and the coach called a timeout and the referee gave it to them. It should have a been a backcourt violation. There was a minute left and we were down six. They hit a layup, then we hit a 3, and we were down five. The next possession, the girl traveled and he didn’t call it and they called another timeout.”

Neshannock shot 17 of 47 for the game, but did make 7 of 15 3-pointers, including 6 of 7 in the second half. Ericka Warvell scored a game-high 16 points, while Chelsea Kauffman and Tara Richardson added 11, both scoring nine points in the second half.
