The North Penn-Mansfield Girls Basketball team won their 5 of their last 6 games as they beat their district rival North Penn-Liberty, 56-30 on Monday, February 3.

The Lady Tigers got off to a fast start with two early baskets and pushed their lead to 23-12 after the opening quarter. Both teams struggled from the field in the 2nd. Mansfield was held to just two baskets and a foul shot while Liberty only made one shot. Mansfield led 29-16 at the half but Liberty cut the lead early in the 3rd quarter, and hung around within 10 points until late in the 3rd and early in the 4th.

The Tigers led 40-24 to start the final quarter then pulled away as they used a 16-6 run to close out the game.

Two Lady Tigers scored in double digits on the evening led by JoAnne McNamara with 18 and Jaime Palmer with 13. Lizzi Welch finished with 7 points, Shaelyn Berguson and Sarah Spohn scored 6 points each, and Lizzie Kahl and Hannah Bowens added 3 points each.

Emma Palmer grabbed 13 rebounds and McNamara added 6 rebounds and 6 assists.

Eva Rice led the Lady Mounties with 16 points, Ryann Upham had 5, Jaclyn Nelson scored 4, Sidney Landis and Kiersten Mitstifer pitched in 2 points each, and Elizabeth Ritchie rounded out the scoring with a point.

Mansfield improved their record to 12-8 overall and ties them for 2nd in the NTL Small School Division standings with Canton at 7-7 to keep their Showdown hopes alive. Liberty fell to 2-18 (1-13 NTL Small School Division). Both teams face each other again on Wednesday night at Liberty.
