Knights spoil senior night for Lady ’Dogs

MEADVILLE — After celebrating the departing 12th-graders, the Meadville girls basketball team came out charged up for the first quarter, knotting a tough Franklin squad 9-9.

The visiting Knights, however, found their groove and out-scored the Lady Bulldogs 35-18 during the second and third quarters on their way to a 57-41 Region 5 victory over the ’Dogs during senior night action at the House of Thrills on Monday.

Angelina Starr lit it up for 23 points for the Lady Knights (14-7, 7-4 Region 5). Becca Gravatt added 10 points.

For Meadville, Kiashiah Newsome led the way with 18 points. Cadi McCoy was the next highest scorer with six points.

The contest was Meadville’s final game at home for the season for Bulldogs seniors McCoy and Alex Smith.

Cats hold off Eagles

YOUNGSVILLE — Saegertown’s patented zone defense came up big in the first quarter and held Youngsville to just two points. And that proved to be enough as the Panthers beat the Eagles 30-22 on Monday in Region 3 girls basketball action.

Tori Eckart and Jessica Tomiczek led the Panthers (11-8, 5-7 Region 3) with nine points each. Sadie Mondi added eight points.

Kennedy Cratty paced the Eagles (7-12, 4-6) with 11 points.

Cards snuff Rockets

TITUSVILLE — Cochranton was dealt a bit of adversity Monday night when what the Lady Cardinals believed to be a home game turned into bus ride to Titusville for the Lady Rockets’ senior night festivities. Cochranton managed to deal pretty well though, handing the Rockets a 66-34 loss in non-region action.

Kendell Dickson paced the Cardinals (14-4) with 16 points. Madi Bernarding added 10 points.

Blue Devils dominate Lady Tigers

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS — Cambridge Springs kept pace in the Region 3 girls basketball race on Monday with its 60-26 win over Maplewood.

The Blue Devils improved to 13-7 overall and 8-3 in Region 3 and are a half-game back of Cochranton (13-4, 8-2 Region 3) in the title race with one region game remaining on their schedule. Cochranton plays Conneaut, which leads the Region 3 standings but is ineligible to win the title, on Thursday. Cambridge finishes out its region schedule against Eisenhower on Saturday.

Paige Wolfrom led the Blue Devils with 16 points. Wolfrom celebrated senior night with an uncharacteristic 3-pointer. Cambridge head coach Rick Grubbs said Wolfrom asked him to re-enter the game to attempt a 3-pointer. He put her back in the game, she put up the shot and sank it. Wolfrom also had eight rebounds.

Tori Hall had 12 points for the Spa, and McKayla Zilhaver tallied nine points and six rebounds.

Jessa Covine and Alyssa Proper had 10 points each for the Tigers.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.

  • Watson pulls away at Augusta to win second green jacket

    One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
    All he cared about was slipping into that green jacket.
    Instead of hitting a 40-yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines — the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago — the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three-shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15-foot birdie putt.
