Greencastle girls defeat Waynesboro

By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Greencastle-Antrim girls basketball team has been missing a little something in its last two games - injured guard Tamyra Toth.

Friday night against Waynesboro, all the Blue Devils did a little bit to fill in the gap, using an incredibly balanced attack in the scorebook and on the glass to drop the Maidens 50-33 for a win in the Mid Penn Colonial.

"That's a little monkey off our shoulder," Greencastle coach Doug Stuart said. "We couldn't dwell on losing Tam(yra) anymore. We did that and moved on."

The Devils (4-2, 2-1) moved way beyond Waynesboro in the second quarter. The Maidens (2-4, 2-2) got the first bucket to tie the game at 15-15 before Greencastle's full-court man-to-man forced seven turnovers in the next 10 possessions. It resulted in a 12-0 run over the next 3 minutes, 40 seconds and finished as an 18-2 streak to close the half.


"We were up ... and they picked it up," Waynesboro coach John Lewkowicz said. "Right there in the second, we sort of backed off and they seized the moment."

From there on, there were few distressing moments for the Blue Devils, thanks to a 43-26 domination on the glass. Greencastle's inside trio of Jillian Leedy, Alicia Thompson and Jessica Stotler combined for 23 rebounds and guard Aimee Eshelman added eight more.

"This was a big confidence boost for us," said Greencastle guard Michelle Mentzer, who stayed out of foul trouble and had a game-high 11 points, five steals and four assists. "It's nice to get a win before we play JB (on Tuesday). We were having trouble with that."
