ALBION — Corry's middle school girls basketball team continued its winning ways on the road, topping Northwestern 32-10 on Tuesday.
"This was a physical game. We knew that Northwestern was a strong team that could handle the ball," admitted coach Ryan Mumau. "The girls were up to the challenge and shut them down. The game started off close with the end of the first quarter being 4-2 for Corry. We told the girls that the only thing they needed to improve on was rebounding.
"We were letting them get too many second- and third-chance opportunities," he noted. "Well, for the rest of the game the girls controlled the boards and ended up with 39 rebounds."
Corry held a 12-0 lead in the second quarter and 10-2 in the third.
Haley Mumau led the scoring with 14 points, Grace Allen with eight, Rylee Nickerson and Lily Light with four and Allison Yetzer with two.
Allen had 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks. Mumau came up with eight boards and five steals, Regan Kemp with four rebounds and two blocks.
Nickerson was tops in rebounds with a dozen, Yetzer with three and Light two.
"I can’t say enough about this game," said coach Mumau. "Our team defense was suffocating, we controlled the boards, we scored half our points on assists and we controlled the tempo of the game. We continue to improve on reading the defense and making the correct play."
Corry travels to Girard today.
