Allegheny overcomes early deficit to beat Wooster

WOOSTER, Ohio — Allegheny rallied from an early deficit to capture a 74-66 win over Wooster during North Coast Athletic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday.

The Fighting Scots had the hot hand early, taking a 14-7 lead just five minutes into the game. Allegheny slowly began to chip away at the deficit, and with 8:02 finally tied the contest at 22-all. The teams then went back and fourth until Kendall Hoffman hit a jumper with 2:25 left in the opening stanza to give the Lady Gators a 28-26 lead.

It turned out to be the turning point in the game.

AC closed with a 6-0 run to take a 32-26 lead at the half. And not only did Hoffman’s clutch ‘J’ gave AC the lead, it proved to be a lead the team would never relinquish.

Rachel Vigliotti made sure the advantage held up by scoring 13 of her team-high 18 points in the second half for the Gators (14-10, 8-7 NCAC). Emma Pellicano added 15 points and eight rebounds, while Meaghan Wilby came off the bench for 13 points.

The Scots (7-16, 2-13) were led by Lauren Hancher’s 24 points. Suvi Putipattarapan added 22 markers in the loss.

The 182-pound bracket for this weekend’s District 10 Class AA championships has been tweaked slightly.

Section 1 runnerup Alex Suydan of Corry withdrew due to an infection that required hospitalization. So, Youngsville’s Stone Sivak — who was third at 182 at the Section 1 tournament — moves into Suydan’s spot and will face Sharon’s Beau Dignall in the first round. Fort LeBoeuf’s Anthony Rivera moves up to Section 1’s third spot and will face Northwestern’s Kyle Panko. And Union City sophomore Btandon Kent gets included in the district bracket as the fourth seed from Section 1. He’ll take on Sharpsville’s P.J. Campoli in the opening round.

The District 10 Class AA championship tournament gets underway Friday at 5:15 p.m. at Sharon High School.
