NTL Showdown Double Header!

by Ed Weaver - February 15, 2016

The North Penn-Mansfield girls and Athens boys claimed the NTL Showdown title on Friday, February 12 at Mansfield University’s Decker Gym.

Girls Championship

North Penn-Mansfield 42, Athens 33

The Lady Tigers and Lady Wildcats split their regular season games, and things looked like it would be neck and neck after both teams were tied 10-10 after the opening quarter. North Penn-Mansfield’s defense turned up the pressure in second and third quarters as they held Athens to a total of eight points, while scoring 19 to break the game open and pull ahead 29-18 after the third. Athens rallied in the fourth and outscored North Penn-Mansfield 15-13, but it was too little too late as North Penn-Mansfield claimed the Showdown crown.

Ali Hillson led North Penn-Mansfield with 16 points, four assists and three steals while Alysa Davey-Bostic had 13 points and six steals. Davey-Bostic did much of her damage in the fourth, scoring six of her points in the final frame. Sara Wolbert netted six points, Lauren Smith had four points and six rebounds, and Avery Montefusco hit a 3-pointer to round out the Tiger scorers.

Morgan Westbrook led the Lady Wildcats with 12 points, six of them in a fourth quarter rally attempt, Emily Lunger had 10 points, Shanell Baglini scored five, Breana Gambrell had four, and Kaitlyn Testen netted two.
