JOHNSONBURG â€“Â Turnovers and poor shooting may have cost the Rams the game Monday night as the Brookville boys basketball team escaped a sloppy fourth quarter by both teams for a 39-37 victory over Johnsonburg.
The Rams led by as many as six points in the third quarter but were unable to completely close the door on the visiting Raiders.
A 9-0 Brookville run after halftime spurred the Lady Raiders to a 44-26 win over the Ridgway Lady Elkers Monday night at Ridgway Area High School.
Ridgway gymnastics won 104.15-102.625 over Bellefonte in a home meet held Saturday afternoon at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
Ridgway freshman Hailey Hoffman was the vault, beam and floor exercise event winner Saturday and took the all-around event with a score of 32.375.
A slow start equaled a loss for the Johnsonburg Ramettes Saturday night.
Johnsonburg fell behind 17-4 after the first eight minutes and were unable to make up the deficit in a 48-35 defeat to the Coudersport Lady Falcons Saturday evening at the Johnsonburg Tip-Off Tournament held at Johnsonburg Area High School.
Despite two playmakers in foul trouble, the Ridgway Lady Elkers ran off a furious second-half rally Friday night only to fall just short in a 42-36 loss against the Curwensville Lady Tide.
The home team got a 13-point night from Emily Fullem and 12 points from Jessica Kifer, but the Lady Elkers were unable to "turn the Tide" against Curwensville after a 24-14 halftime deficit.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ A runaway defeat turned into a victory for Coudersport girls basketball Friday night.
Coudersport rallied from a 16-4 first-quarter deficit to take a 44-43 win over Kane at the Johnsonburg Tip-Off Tournament at Johnsonburg Area High School.
Emily Morey hit a short jumper with eight seconds left to put the Lady Falcons ahead. Kane had one final chance but could not get a fluent possession together and did not get a possible game-winning shot off in time.
Foul trouble kept Jeremy Breier from having much success or seeing much playing time in the first half.
The second half was a different story.
Breier scored 18 of his game-high 24 points for Ridgway boys basketball in the second half as Ridgway moved to 3-0 with a 55-26 win over Port Allegany Wednesday night at Ridgway Area High School.
JOHNSONBURG â€“Â Elk County Catholic had solid scoring all around Wednesday night in a 55-22 rout over the Johnsonburg Ramettes.
The Lady Crusaders were led by Reilly Herzing and Nicole Schneider as they came off the bench to score 11 and eight points, respectively. Four Lady Crusaders scored at least seven points in the win.
Ridgwayâ€™s gymnastics season opened with an all-around individual victory.
Hailey Hoffman picked up the all-around win and three out of four event wins during Ridgwayâ€™s meet against St. Marys Wednesday night at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
The Elk County Catholic Crusaders opened their 2014-2015 campaign with a 72-33 victory over the Johnsonburg Rams on Tuesday night at the ECCHS gymnasium.
"I'm happy with the win, happy to start this way," said ECC head coach Aaron Straub.
The Crusaders held a 20-5 lead at the end of the first quarter and were up 32-17 at the break. At the end of three quarters they had extended that lead to 56-25.
