County rivals York Suburban and Susquehannock faced off to raise awareness for Gastric Cancer in this year’s Hoops For Hope charity game last week.
The Trojans came out running and gunning, taking a 10-4 lead in the opening quarter. Trojan star Molly Day looked on to lead her team to a victory since they lost in a previous game. The Trojans tried to stun the Warriors as they attempted to copy the girls’ plays. When the Warriors called out their plays, the Trojans thought they had an edge after scouting the Warriors all season.
The Warriors struggled in the first half, but due to a three point buzzer beater from forward Tyler Williams, it set off a spark for the girls. The Warriors led the half at 33-32 over the Trojans, but that wasn’t enough to stop Trojan shooter Olivia Gettle as she poured in 3 three-pointers in the 3rd quarter for her team, giving them an edge. The Warrior defense was the set point for the rest of the game. The Trojans were only focused on their starting five; the Warriors run and gun style was too much for them.
Senior Ashley Stone poured in 16 points for the Warriors. Anna Mahan delivered 12, and Williams supplied 11 for their team. The Warriors really slowed down the Trojans as they held the ball and ran some time off the clock with every possession. The Trojans had no choice but to commit fouls to get the Warriors to the line for free throws. As time winded down, the Warriors knew they had won over the Trojans for the second time of the season. The Warriors took the win 51-45 in front of their home crowd, giving everyone some hoops for hope.
