McCONNELLSBURG - McConnellsburg put the clamps on Southern Huntingdon, 13-2, in the second quarter and blanked the Rockets in the fourth period to take a 36-26 victory in Sideling Hill League and Inter-County Conference girls basketball Thursday night.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Lady Spartans (2-3, 1-2 SHL, 1-2 ICC).

Sam Roberts led McConnellsburg with 15 points. Nikki Fleming was the leader with 11 rebounds and added eight points, four steals and two assists.

Spartans coach Dave Garland said, "It was actually a very close game at times. We were down by 11-8 after one quarter and 13-11 in the second quarter, then we went on a 10-0 run to end the first half up 21-13. They came out in the third quarter and cut it to one. Then we knocked down some shots from the line and they couldn't buy a bucket from the field (in the fourth quarter).

"We've been losing games at the foul line, but tonight we went 7-for-9 in the fourth quarter."

Tussey Mountain rode a 24-6 second-quarter advantage to a victory over Fannett-Metal Tigers coach Jen Lauthers said, "We were in it in the first quarter. But in the second quarter we just didn't handle their press and the wheels fell off. We couldn't recuperate from that. You just can't score six points in a quarter and expect things to turn out well. We tried hard in the second half and did a lot of things better, but we couldn't overcome that." Fannett-Metal (2-2, 1-2 SHL, 0-2 ICC) was led by Blaire Lauthers with 15 points, while Melissa Zeger scored 10 points and Megan Dougherty had 9 For Tussey Mountain, Olivia Claycomb had 19 points and Morgan Lynn scored 18.

The Cardinals (1-3, 0-2 SHL, 1-2 ICC) were led by Shayla Carmack, who had 12 points, and Braylin Hohman followed with 10 ... Forbes was shorthanded due to some illness, then an ankle injury to Sam Clippinger continued to set the Cardinals back ... FR coach Stacy Horne said, "After (the injury), we were just making some really bad passes. In the third quarter, we held our ground until the last minute of the quarter. But they were definitely working the ball faster than we were and getting a lot more shots."
