Ending the game on a 14-0 run, St. Clair captured its first Four Rivers Conference win of the girls basketball season Monday over Union.
Leading 49-46 midway through the fourth quarter, the Lady Bulldogs scored the final 14 points in a 63-46 victory.
“The girls played hard. We had a really solid scoring second quarter to give us a big advantage,” said St. Clair Head Coach Jena Carroll. “I was happy with our push at the end of the game and our continued efforts to score.”
The Lady ’Cats chipped away at a 32-16 halftime deficit, cutting it to three points in the fourth quarter.
“It was a good game. We fought hard in the second half and made it a 49-46 ballgame with about five minutes to go in the fourth quarter,” said Union Head Coach Dusty Weiskopf. “Then (Bri) Clark fouled out, we lost the momentum and they finished the game on a 14-0 run.”
St. Clair (8-10, 1-3) held leads of 12-10 after one quarter, 32-16 at halftime and 49-38 after three quarters.
Union (2-13, 0-4) opened the fourth quarter with an 8-0 run to pull to within 49-46 before the Lady Bulldogs ended with their run.
“Union made a great comeback,” Carroll said. “We were delayed in adjusting some things defensively and Clark took advantage.”
Karissa Hoffman led all scorers with 17 points for the Lady Bulldogs.
“Karissa had a terrific game. She did a great job on defense against a talented Clark,” Carroll said. “She also looked for her shot really well and was aggressive to the basket.”
Allison Hinson finished the game with 12 points. Katelyn Guehne added 11 points.
Alicia York collected eight points. Kelsey Wachter netted seven points. Sam Deason scored six points. Halley Cokley had two points.
