Wilmington turns back Shenango
Shenango (37) Vs. Wilmington (46)
Jan 29, 2011
A halftime pep talk and some key buckets by Mackenzie Hiers lifted Wilmington to a 46-37 nonconference win over Shenango.
The Lady Greyhounds (8-8) led, 18-13, at intermission, but coach Brandy Sanford said they looked uninspired.
“Typically, we have a decent first half and we’re flat in the second half. It was the opposite today,” Sanford said. “We talked to girls at halftime and told them they have to come out with some vigor and fire in the second half, and they did.”
Hiers scored six of her eight points in the first three minutes of the third quarter to extend Wilmington’s lead to 11. Julie Burns led the Lady Greyhounds with 13 markers, while Cassie Marett netted 12.
Jenna Petrucci scored a game-high 14 points for Shenango (2-16) and Justine Razo was next with 10.
