The Uniontown Eagles faced the Southeast Lancers on February 7. The Varsity boys won their game, but the girls were unfortunately defeated.

The girls lost to the Lancers 58 to 70 tonight. Danielle Howard had 20 points and 8 steals. Karleigh Schoenberger had 16 points and 4 rebounds. Sammie Hampton scored 10 points, and also had 6 rebounds and 2 steals. Lauren Shinn Had 2 assists and 3 rebounds.

“This game was definitely a tale of two halves,” said Coach Miller. “We played well in the first half. Our shot selection and defense looked to be on track to secure a win. We went to halftime with a 17 point lead. Unfortunately, in the second half, our decision making was poor and Southeast proved to have the resolve necessary to overcome the deficit and get the win. This one stung, but we will not dwell on it. It is a privilege to coach these young ladies and I know we will hit the hardwood on Monday and get prepared to play at Yates Center on Tuesday.”

The boys Varsity beat the Lancers 67 to 54. Overall, they out-rebounded the Lancers by 13 rebounds. Jake Harvey and Luke George lead in points, scoring 24 and 23, respectively; both also had 13 rebounds and 3 assists. Hunter Schaaf scored 12 points and Drew Perry had 4 assists.

Coach Hays said, “Anytime a team can shoot 40% from the field, they have a good chance to be successful. I thought in the second half we made a lot of winning plays, whether diving for loose balls or making the extra pass. If we keep doing those things and playing solid defense, we could continue this stretch of success.”
