Mansfield 3-Pointers Down Wellsboro

Lady Tigers hit 7 threes in 45-30 win over Lady Hornets


by Ed Weaver - January 21, 2020

After losing to rival Wellsboro earlier this season, the North Penn-Mansfield girls returned the favor on Monday, January 20 with a 45-30 win.

The Lady Tigers hit 14 field goals on the evening, half of them came from behind the three-point line. Mansfield built up a 13-3 lead with 2:34 left to play in the 1st quarter. Wellsboro added one more bucket to trail 13-5 after the opening 8 minutes. Mansfield increased their lead in the 2nd with a 14-10 run, which included 3 more three-pointers.

Wellsboro made a small run to start the 3rd quarter by outscoring the Lady Tigers 9-7 to pull within 10 points to start the 4th quarter, but Mansfield was able to fend off Wellsboro with an 11-6 run to get their record back over .500.

“It was huge, it was a big win for us,” Mansfield head coach Jason Dominick said. “We lost to them at home and didn’t play a great game, but it was nice to come here. This is a tough place to play. They are a tough team and are well coached. I’m just really proud of our kids. We executed our game plan and came home with a nice win. Any time you can beat a rival it feels good.”

Lizzi Welch had a game-high 15 points to lead North Penn-Mansfield while JoAnne McNamara added 13. Jaime Palmer scored 9 points, Shaelyn Berguson added 6 off the bench, and Hannah Bowens pitched in with 2 points. Welch also added 7 rebounds and 3 steals and McNamara had 6 assists.

Cathryn Brought also scored 15 points on the evening to lead Wellsboro. Jordyn Abernathy had 6, Emma Coolidge scored 4, Kiyah Boyce and Emma Brandenburg scored 2 points each, and Bailey Monks rounded out the scoring with 1 point.

“Tonight was disappointing,” said Wellsboro head coach Maureen Poirier. “We came home with a win last time and tonight I was very confident coming in. However Mansfield executed very well tonight, they shot very well, and they did a great job in shutting down our offense. Last time we beat them in the paint, they shut that down and they shut down Cathryn, a key to our offense. We have to be more confident offensively.”

North Penn-Mansfield won the JV game 22-17.

The win improves North Penn-Mansfield’s record to 8-7 (3-6 NTL Small School Division) while Wellsboro falls to 5-7 (5-4 NTL Large School Division). Both teams are back in action on Wednesday night, as Mansfield travels to Canton and Wellsboro hosts Williamson.
