STRUTHERS OH- If you are a fan of offense, you would have been right at home in the Struthers Fieldhouse on Thursday night. Struthers welcomed in Girard for a huge matchup inside the NE8. Girard needed a win to draw even with the Wildcats and stay one game back from the top spot. Struthers needed a win to set up a first place game with Poland. The stars came out on the big stage as both teams put up a fantastic offensive effort, however it was Struthers that had a little more fire power in a 74-63 win.
Chloe Neider had the night of her career. When the Wildcats needed her most she dropped an eye popping 36 points to lead the way. She wasn’t alone though, Emma Morris shined as well as she went off for 23 points. Katelyn Kimble was also in double figures for the high powered offense with 19. Faith Stellato hit a trio of threes to finish with 9 points.
Sieasia Triplett put everything she had on the floor for Girard finishing the game with a team-high 23 points. Allison Durkin hit a pair of threes on her way to 18 points. Abbie Rafferty was also in double figures for Girard finishing with 10 points.
Struthers now sets up a battle for first place at home on Monday as Poland comes to town. Girard will stay on the road Monday as they go to Jefferson to try and bounce back.
