"That's a lot of senior leadership," said Knights coach Kara Nelson of Holian's effort. "She's a great player who knows how to score and knows how to hit the people under the basket."
Meanwhile, Catoctin had trouble finding the range at the offensive end. The Cougars missed 18 of 26 field goals in the first half, and committed a total of 14 turnovers.
"We just didn't know how to break the press," said Catoctin coach Tracy Franklin. "We're a small team, and it's not easy for us to see over their (taller players). Plus, Jessica Blickenstaff was out with a concussion tonight. She's 6-foot, and she's our trap breaker."
A Heidi Stull bucket and a three-point play by Emily Balogh midway through the third period pulled the Cougars to within 10, but buckets from Jenny Wheeler and Jessica Metzner kept Catoctin from getting any closer, as Middletown continued to dominate the game inside.
"That's been part of our problem until this point," said Nelson. "We've been working hard on our rebounding in practice, trying to take advantage of our size advantage."
Franklin would agree that the work has paid dividends.
"(Their inside play) absolutely killed us," said Franklin. "It was one of those nights when we just didn't have it."
Holian added the finishing touches to the rout by hitting eight points in a 10-2 Middletown run that pushed the Knights' margin to 21 with just over four minutes to play.
