CLYMER, N.Y. — What a difference Dani Reinwald makes.

But most girls basketball fans already know that.

With her team leading West Valley 10-2, the 6-foot forward drew her second personal foul and headed for the bench. The visiting Wildcats took advantage of her absence and scored 11 straight points, taking a 13-10 lead.

Clymer coach Scott Neckers had seen enough. This was a Section 6 Class D playoff game.

So he rolled the dice and put Reinwald back in Saturday afternoon’s game for the last minute of the quarter.

The junior standout netted 13 points in the period, a 26-8 edge for the Lady Pirates, who went on to win going away, 65-47.

Reinwald wound up with a career-best 34 points to go with 22 rebounds, five steals and six blocked shots.

“In the second quarter, we played much better with all five girls scoring,” said coach Scott Neckers. “In the third quarter, we came out playing hard and went on a 10-2 run.”

That gave Clymer a 49-27 advantage.
