Dillon girls turn back Maroons

By Derek Hendrickson

DILLON — The Dillon Beavers relied on their strong zone defense to pull away from the Maroons for a 48-24 Southwestern A girls’ basketball win Thursday night.

Senior Courtney Linder led all scorers with 10 points as Dillon had a well balanced effort on offense.

Sophomore Rachel Nye was a key contributor as her back to back three pointers put Dillon up 17-9 two minutes in the second.  Nye totaled 8 along with junior Cierra Lamey.

The Maroons stayed in it early by playing solid defense the rest of the frame by holding Dillon to only 3 more points but couldn’t take advantage as they only managed three themselves.

The Beavers got 13 points from non-starters in the first half, which outscored the whole Central team.

Freshman Mollie Peoples scored five in the first quarter to keep the Maroons close.

The Maroons struggled with foul trouble as starters Ryan Trudnowski an Chandra McCurdy both picked up their fourth fouls in the first minute of the second half.

Forced to play young backups the Maroons struggled against the Dillon zone and fell farther behind as the second half progressed.

Teresa Piazzola, Emily St. John and Peoples each scored five to pace the Maroons who will be back in action Friday night at 7:30 when they host the Park High Rangers.
