Blue Jays glide by Pirates

Stanley – The Stanley Blue Jays eased by the Tioga Pirates 72-20 in girls basketball action Saturday.

The Blue Jays dominated the game from the opening tip, never letting the Pirates get any type of rhythm going offensively. “We played solid team defense and moved the ball around a lot on offense. If we keep moving the ball around and playing hard defense we will be a team to compete with,” said Blue Jay senior Megan Mills.

Stanley used a balanced defensive attack and a lot of pressure to force a season high 51 turnovers, “Our younger girls were able to come in and make some plays defensively,” said Stanley coach Kelly Roemmich.

The Blue Jays were paced offensively by sophomore Abby Iverson and seniors Megan Mills, the duo combined for 37 points. Senior Lacey Meiers added 14  points for Blue Jays,  senior Maddie Meiers chipped in 7 points.

Freshman Hannah Sorenson scored her first varsity basket, she finished with 7 points. Fellow freshman Haley Schmidt also recorded her first varsity basket for the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays move to 6-3 with victory, they will play Burke County on January, 5th in Burke County.
