MANCHESTER — The Susquehannock girls' basketball team had no answer for Northeastern senior forward Jordyn Kloster on Tuesday evening.

But the Warriors did have a formula for success during a 63-37 YAIAA Division II win at Northeastern High School.

The 5-foot-9 Kloster, who surpassed 1,000 career points in the season opener, wound up scoring all but eight of Northeastern's points in the game.

"We obviously didn't do a good job on Kloster," said Susquehannock coach Dave Schreiner. "We worked really had on defense, we just didn't really have an answer for her."

Kloster scored 22 of her 29 points in the first half and almost single-handedly helped keep Northeastern within seven points heading into the third quarter.

"In the second half, we used some box-and-one (defense) on (Kloster)," Schreiner said. "It worked. We also said, look, if she gets 40, as long as anybody else doesn't score, we are in pretty good shape. But we need to play better defense than that moving forward when we are facing somebody with her scoring ability."

Northeastern (1-2, 0-1 Division II) watched Susquehannock begin to pull away in the second half. The Bobcats shot 1 of 8 from the field in the third quarter and 2 of 10 from the field in the final eight minutes. Northeastern also committed 14 turnovers in the game.

Susquehannock (3-0, 1-0 Division II) had four players score in double figures and committed just five turnovers in the game against the Bobcats. Taylor Williams topped the Warriors with 19 points while Ashley Stone added 13 points. Freshman Jayla Galbreath and Anna Mahan chipped in with 10 points each. The diminutive Galbreath also sank three 3-point goals for the third consecutive game.

"We have a pretty good nucleus of ball handlers," Schreiner said. "Tyler did a nice job. Anna Mahan did a nice job. Jayla came in and gave us some 3s and ball handling, Ashley had a good game and Kelsey McCullough did a nice job and played good defense."

Susquehannock has now held its opponent to under 40 points for the second time in three games this season.

"Nothing replaces good defense," Schreiner said. "Talent doesn't even replace it. We've been playing well on that end for the most part."
