SW gals trump Trojans, 42-30



After losing to Turkey Valley early in the season, the Lady Warriors pulled together and led for most of the 48 minutes on Friday to leave victorious, 42-30.

The first stanza was the closest of the evening, with the lead bouncing back in forth. Megan Elsbernd knotted the score, 6-6, with 2:53 remaining. It was a scoring drought for the two rivals in the closing minutes until Micole Lansing drained a trey with 30 ticks remaining to pull SW ahead, 9-6.

The Lady Warriors gained a larger advantage, 13-6, early in the second period before TV came to life on a 9-0 run with 1:40 left before the break. At that point it was South Winn’s turn to light up the rim with Payton Poshusta hitting a long ball and jumper. Lansing added a three-pointer with 11 seconds remaining to take SW into halftime with a 23-18 lead.

The Trojans scored the first and last basket of the third quarter, but those would be TV’s only points as South Winn galloped out front, 35-22.

Brittany Shindelar opened up the fourth quarter with a 10-foot jumper, and the remaining five points of the quarter for SW came from the charity stripe as the Lady Warriors secured the 42-30 win.

The week will conclude at North Fayette Valley Thursday and then against Starmont at home Friday.
