LHS pulls away late from Tri-West

Lizton — It wasn’t the ideal first half for the Class 3A No. 3 Lebanon Lady Tigers.

But after trailing 22-20 with 3:25 left in the first half and their star in foul trouble, Lebanon closed the half on a 6-0 run and carried the momentum into the second half in a 68-50 win.

“I thought we started off the game really sluggish,” Lebanon head coach Beth DeVinney said. “We had a couple kids fighting the flu so it was good for us to at least come out and fight through it. We were waiting for it to come through our team and now it is. I can’t say enough about Kristen Spolyar. She is one of the kids fighting it right now and she had a tremendous game. Sometimes you forget she is a freshman.”

Spolyar led the Tigers with 27 points and Katie Curtis added 19 points. Aspen Davis was the third Tiger in double figures with 10.

Those two had scored 16 of the Tigers first 20 points, when Curtis picked up her third foul late in the half.

With her on the bench, the Tigers clamped down defensively, holding the Bruins scoreless while baskets from Spolyar, Kendra Yoder and Whitney Cosgray gave the Tigers the 26-22 lead at the half.

“The group we had on the floor, Whitney, Kallee (Rice), Kate O’Rourke — those kids came in and gave us a tremendous spark,” DeVinney said “We went up four there just getting rebounds and doing good things on offense. That little run really changed the complexion of the game.”

Spolyar hit a 3-pointer to start the second half to bring the lead to seven.

After a basket by Tri-West’s Cary Brown cut the lead to six with 6:08 left in the third, Lebanon went on a 9-2 run (capped by a 3-pointer from Davis) to make it 43-30.
