BULLDOGS ADVANCE PAST MOONEY INTO DISTRICTS

POLAND OH- It was pretty apparent that Saturday’s matchup between Mooney and Poland was going to be a defensive battle. Both teams came in statistically some of the best defenses in the YSN family. The defenses didn’t disappoint the hype, as both teams made a plethora of great defensive plays. It was Poland however that found a way to score enough to advance past Mooney with a 42-34 win.

Poland’s first quarter set the tone for the game. It was by far their most productive frame of the game. They jumped out to a 16-8 lead after 1. Katie McDonald was a problem in that frame scoring all 6 of her points in the first. Poland’s defense did the rest as the closest Mooney got the rest of the way was 3.

Abby Farber led the Bulldogs with 14 points on the night. Fellow seniors Connie Cougras was right behind her with 12 points.

Mooney senior Alaina Scavina did everything she  could for her team. She scored 14 points to lead the way. Sophia Diorio scored 8.

Poland advances to the district semifinal where they’ll meet up with West Branch. That game will take place on Wednesday at Uniontown Lake. Tip off is set at 7:30.
