Southern Fulton 51, Southern Huntingdon 50 >> Olivia Mottern drained 13 of 15 free throws - including seven of eight in the fourth quarter - to lead Southern Fulton to a Sideling Hill/Inter-County Conference over Southern Huntingdon.

Mottern hit her final two foul shots to give SF (9-2, 5-2 SHL, 4-2 ICC) the lead for good, and it was preserved when the Rockets missed a contested layup with 10 seconds left.

“It came down to fouls - the refs were calling a lot,” Indians coach Meagan Raville said. “Shaye Smartt and Mottern made the last ones. I was proud of the way the girls started the game (ahead 30-25 at the half) but we need to keep that tempo. We kept our composure, though.”

Mottern dropped in 24 points, while Celina Merchant added 12. Drew Gordon picked up nine rebounds.

Everett 57, Forbes Road 21 >> In arguably its biggest challenge of the season, Forbes Road fell to Everett in a Sideling Hill/Inter-County Conference game.

Everett kept the Cardinals (5-5, 2-5 SHL/1-5 ICC) from scoring through the first quarter, heading into the break with a 39-6 lead.

“We got off to a really bad start, with no points in the first quarter,” Forbes Road coach Jeff Gelvin said. “We didn’t seem ready to play tonight and Everett played very well. This is the first game of the season we didn’t show up to play, and that has to be partly my fault.”

McKenzie Gelvin still managed to finish in double figures, leading the Cardinals with 11 points. Mina Wilt finished with five points and six rebounds, while Malea Truax had four steals.
