MC Girls Deal Notre Dame First Loss of the Season
Dec. 29, 2017

FROM STAFF REPORTS
BERWICK — Mifflin County’s girls basketball team was able to overcome a sluggish first half to hand Notre Dame Green Pond its first loss of the season, 50-44, in a holiday tournament game played Thursday at Berwick.
Mifflin County managed just 13 points in the first half, but then exploded for 20 in the third quarter alone to take a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
“We came out very flat,” Huskies coach Roger Herto lamented. “In the first half, I felt like we were trying to do things too fast on offense. The second half, we came out, we went down the floor, five people touched the basketball on each possession.
“We played better team ball on offense. When we do that, we can be pretty good.”
One aspect of the game in particular buoyed the Huskies down the stretch — free-throw shooting. Mifflin County went 12 for 16 at the charity stripe in the fourth quarter, allowing it to stymie the comeback effort of the Crusaders.
“At the free throw line, we came through pretty big,” Herto said. “It’s a good sign to see.”
Mifflin County’s Eleana Eckley led all scorers with 26 points.
The Huskies will take on host Berwick at 7 p.m. today in the tournament’s championship game.
The junior varsity team also won its game over Notre Dame Green Pond by a 49-29 margin. Kolbi Knode led the Huskies with 11 points. The JVs will also play Berwick in the JV tournament championship, a game that starts at 5:30 p.m. today.
