E-town holds off Ephrata girls
The Ephrata girls gave second-place Elizabethtown quite a battle Tuesday night at home. But in the end, St. Joseph’s bound Sarah Fairbanks proved to be too much for Ephrata to handle.
Fairbanks, the leading scorer in the L-L League, scored a game-high 23 points as the Lady Bears held off Ephrata, 35-29 in the Section Two contest.
E-town led it 22-15 at the half but Ephrata made some headway in the third quarter, cutting the deficit to just three points (25-22) heading to the fourth.
But the Lady Mounts could get no closer as E-town (4-2 section, 8-4 overall) stretched its lead to six and closed it out.
Ephrata was led by Sarah Hoffer’s nine-point effort. Sarah Haddon and Joelisa Harvest each tallied seven as the Lady Mounts fell to 2-4 in section play (3-8 overall).
Cocalico, meanwhile, evened its section record at 3-3 (5-6 overall) Tuesday night in Witmer as the visiting Lady Eagles earned a 40-34 victory over host Conestoga Valley.
Kristen Boyer scored a game-high 12 points while Marissa Gingrich and Taylor Esterly each added 10 to pace the Lady Eagles, who outscored the Bucks, 24-16 in the second half.
Friday night, Cocalico suffered a 37-20 loss at the hands of E-town as Fairbanks led the Bears with a game-high 20 points.
Gingrich scored a team-high six points for Cocalico.
Friday night on the road in Lebanon, Ephrata jumped out to a big 44-21 lead after three quarters before holding off a Cedar charge en route to a 56-44 Section Two win.
Haddon and Ashley Mayer both scored 14 points apiece to lead Ephrata, which also received 10 points each from Hoffer and Kristy Liebl in the win.
Lebanon’s Sadie Eisenhour led all scorers with 24 points while teammate Brittany Ulrich chipped in with nine in the loss.
Ephrata also was in action Saturday afternoon in a non-league contest at Muhlenberg where the host Muhls pulled out a 47-37 victory.
Muhlenberg outscored Ephrata 11-4 in the first quarter then held off the Lady Mounts the rest of the way. Liebl, a freshman, led all scorers with a career-high 19 points in the loss. More EPHRATA GIRLS, page B-3
