Keshequa 53 Warsaw 43
After falling behind early at the “Indians Reservation”, coach Pete Piraino’s Keshequa girls turned things around in the middle 2 quarters to turn the tide of the game their way as Keshequa would win the battle of “orange & black” on Friday (Jan. 8) night by a final score of 53-43. The visiting Tigers were determined to get out of gates early….& they did just that in bolting out to a 12-7 over their hosts. The Indians reversed that momentum very quickly as they would respond to the Tigers’ charge with an offensive outburst of their own. The Indians went on the warpath offensively & defensively in the 2nd quarter outscoring the visiting Tigers 14-2 to take a 7-point lead in at the half. Keshequa would add to their lead in the 3rd as Pete Piraino’s club would muster a 31-13 run in those 2 middle quarters to push things into their court for the 10 point win.
Junior forward Madison Ewing led Keshequa ( 7-5) with a double-double performance scoring 13 points & grabbing a dozen rebounds. Cameryn Bugman netted 12 points…Payton Powers added 10 with 7 boards…McKenzy Bennett contributed 7 markers…while Lacey Hillier, Katheryn Gelser & Amber Wood had 3 apiece and Hayley Smith scored 2 points in the win.
Warsaw (5-7) was paced by Abby Monahan’s 9 points as Stella Glosser had 8.
