HUMMELSTOWN - Greencastle-Antrim's girls basketball team fought off a determined Carlisle squad Friday night and captured the consolation game of the Lower Dauphin Tournament, 62-56.

The young Blue Devils (4-4) have had difficulty winning close games, as coach Mike Rhine pointed out, losing by four to Chambersburg and by three to Boiling Springs. Thus, defeating the Thundering Herd by six was a pleasant experience for G-A.

Katie Gelsinger led the Devils with 24 points and added 10 rebounds. Chloe Hoover led with 12 rebounds and added 18 points, including three 3-pointers.

Rhine said, "We played really well. The girls continue to improve each game. Katie had a monster game and Chloe was her usual consistent self."

Greencastle led by four after one quarter and by 12 at halftime. The Herd rallied to get to within six, 44-38, after three periods. The Devils then fought their opponents to an 18-18 draw in the final stanza.

Rhine said, "With a young team, every game is a new experience. With that said, it was nice to have Jane Herman step up to the line, for example, and make free throws when we needed them."

Hannah Crist led G-A with nine assists and had four points. Megan Herneisen scored eight points and Herman added six. Megan Bisker led the Herd (0-8) with 18 points.

Rhine said, "It's a long process, but we're coming along. We're learning how to win the close ones.
