POLAND OH- It was only two days ago that Poland suffered their first conference loss to Girard. They were happy that they didn’t have to sit on a loss for long, but they also understood the United team coming to town was no pushover. The Eagles gained everyone’s attention as they led most of the way through three quarters. Although their biggest lead of the day was only 5, the Eagles never gave in to Poland throughout the day. That was until the final frame. Trailing 31-29 heading into the last 8 minutes, the Bulldogs outscored the Eagles 13-4 and walked away with a 42-35 win.
Sarah Forsyth paced Poland on the day with a hard fought 13 points. Katie McDonald played an excellent 4th quarter and finished in double figures with 11 points. Mary Brant contributed 6 points to the Poland offense.
United was led by Grace Knight with 12 points. Maddie Kibbler had a solid day getting in to double figures with 10 points. Taylor Cope chipped in with 7 points on the day.
Poland returns to NE8 play on Thursday as they host Niles. United will also get back to their conference on Thursday as they travel to Leetonia.
