Arnone comes up big inside for Boonsboro

December 13, 2008|By Jack Hill III

Six-foot senior center Brynn Arnone finished with 19 points, 14 rebounds, five steals and three blocks to lead the Boonsboro Warriors past the South Hagerstown Rebels 58-42 on Friday night in a girls basketball game.

"I think I rebounded pretty good tonight," Arnone said. "Some of my shots weren't falling as good tonight, but I still got a few key buckets on the inside. I have the guards that I can kick it out to and they can hit the open jumper."

Boonsboro coach Max Shaffer was pleased with Arnone's performance.

"Brynn played pretty well tonight and kept us in position to win," Shaffer said. "She will probably do that all year."

Arnone is averaging 20 points and 17.5 rebounds per game early this season.

"I think it was good that we came together, but I know that we can do better," Arnone said. "We were talking on defense and that helped out. We were just trying to break the press and get the fast break going."


Emma Dalton added 15 points and six rebounds for Boonsboro (1-1). Ashley Sullivan-Wolfe had nine points and six rebounds, while Ashley Smothers also had nine points.

"I'm just glad that we got out of here with a win," Shaffer said. "I don't know if we were looking ahead to Allegany. But we didn't play near the game that we played against South Carroll. I don't think we played real well. We had a pile of turnovers."

Junior Luna Jefferson finished with team-high totals of 15 points and 10 rebounds for South Hagerstown (0-2). Alex Silva chipped in with 14 points, seven rebounds and six steals. Emma Stahl added nine points and 10 rebounds.

"We're improving every game," South coach Amy Schmuck said. "There are some positive things coming out of each player. They are realizing their roles on this team. It is just one more step to starting a positive season. We are young, but we have the potential to win some games this season. We are going to take it one game at a time."

The teams were tied at 22 with 3:23 remaining in the second quarter. Boonsboro scored the last six points of the period to take a 28-22 halftime lead. Arnone pulled down seven rebounds in the period.

The Warriors outscored the Rebels 12-4 in the third quarter to increase their advantage to 40-26. Arnone had six points and five rebounds in the quarter.

The Rebels cut the lead down to nine points with seven minutes to go, but did not get any closer.
