The Uniontown Eagles and the Cherryvale Chargers went head to head on Monday evening. The Varsity boys won their game, but the Varsity girls and both JV teams lost to the Chargers.
The Varsity girls lost to Cherryvale 45 to 56. Danielle Howard had 15 points, 4 assists, and 6 steals. Breleigh Harris had 14 points and 3 steals. Sammie Hampton had 6 points and rebounded 8 times. Karleigh Schoenberger had 8 points and 3 rebounds. A few of our players were hurt during the game, but they’re tough and will pull through.
“Tough loss tonight,” Coach Miller said. “The girls played a solid first 2 quarters. We had an 11 point lead going into the half. Unfortunately, we came out flat and ended up getting banged up in the 3rd quarter. We went deep into the bench to finish this game. It was good to see some of our role players step up and compete to finish the game.”
The boys’ Varsity beat the Chargers 54 to 52. Jake Harvey scored 16 points and had 7 rebounds and 3 assists. Luke George had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Luke Perry and Hunter Schaaf each had 11 points and 2 assists, and Schaaf had 5 rebounds. Drew Perry had 4 assists.
Coach Hays said, “I thought our kids battled all night. We hung around the entire game and were able to make a play in the final seconds to get a big road win. It’s been a really fun stretch of games. It is quite an accomplishment winning 10 games in a row and 13 of 14. I feel like we are playing our best basketball at the right time.”
