GIRARD SHAKES UP THE NE8

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

GIRARD OH- In the last matchup between these two conference rivals, the lady Indians of Girard only shot 18 percent.  Coach Andy Saxon knew that a change was needed and got that as a last second defensive effort gave the Girard Indians their first win in a while against the Lady Poland Bulldogs 37 to 35.  

 

For Girard, doing most on the court was Allison Durkin with a high of 22 points.  She’d be followed up by Mia Malito with six, Esra DeDe with five and finally Mackenzee White with four.  

 

On the Lady Bulldogs side, it was Mary Brant leading them with 17 points.  Katie McDonald would score double digits as well with 11.  Both Brooke Row and Ariana Daniels combined for four points, and Sarah Forsyth had three. 

 

After the game, Ian O’Brien caught up with coach Andy Saxon and Allison Durkin on the big win and the next game coming up against Lakeview.  Meanwhile, Poland will take on United on Saturday.
