Huskies dominate the night

LOCK HAVEN – This one had Huskies written all over it.
From the very beginning of Monday’s varsity girls contest, the Mifflin County girls basketball team showed that the shooter’s touch as the Huskies defeated host Central Mountain, 85-19.
Leading the way on the evening was Eleana Eckley who posted a new school record high score of 38 points.
Ironically, Eckley only needed two quarters to achieve the fete as she sat out the entire second and fourth quarters.
Eckley wasn’t the only Mifflin County player that got a double-digit performance on the night.
Teammates Molly Wagoner and Fern Selfies all finished in double-digits.
Selfies finished with 15, most of which were from the outside while Wagoner tallied 16, mostly from the paint, in a winning effort.
Central Mountain got a double-digit performance from Summer Flanagan with 11 points. Teammate Morgan Wetzel finished with six.
Central Mountain opened the scoring on a lay in off the tip by Hayley Bauer, making it 2-0.
From there, Eckley exploded for consecutive three’s and then an old fashion three to put the Black and Purple ahead 9-2 before the Wildcats knew what hit them.
Midway through the first quarter, Eckley continued her long distance attack, posting another old fashioned three, upping up the MC advantage to 12-2.
Defensively, the Huskies had things rolling from the beginning as well.
Wagoner’s inside runner in the lane, gave the Huskies as second scorer in the early contest.
With the exception of another shot in the lane by Wagoner, the quarter belonged to Eckley.
When the dust settled, Eckley tallied a 24-point first quarter en route to a 28-4 first quarter lead.
With Eckley sitting in the second, the offensive punch of Mifflin County continued at full force.
The charge was led by Selfie, Wagoner and Hannah Aumiller.
Sporting the strong defensive effort, Mifflin County allowed just six more points in the second while its offense scored 20.
Selfie led the way with six.
When the teams went into the intermission, Mifflin County led 48-10.
Eckley came out of the half and got things going once again from inside and out, picking up 14 more points. The effort helped push the game into a mercy rule situation.
However, that didn’t finish the Huskies from picking up 85 points en route to the 64-point win.
