Corry’s girls basketball team hosted a regional game Saturday morning in the Beaver Dam against a stacked Villa Maria team. The Victors won the game 62-14.
Villa put up 21 first quarter points and held the Beavers scoreless. Villa put another 12 on the board and Corry scored on a Haylee Dyne 3-point shot.
The Victors took a 33-3 lead at the half.
The Beavers managed to put up seven points in the third quarter. Tayler Elchynski connected on a 3-point shot. Kaylee Pierson and Rachel Brady hit a bucket each.
Pierson added another bucket in the fourth as did Lauren Thomas. Villa outscored Corry in the second half 29-11.
“We knew Villa would be a tough matchup and they proved to be,” head coach Rob Elchynski said. “We didn't execute well from the start and against a team like that, it leads to easy layups. We did better in the second half, but you could tell our legs were tired after our Friday night game with McDowell. The girls still battled tough.
“Kaylee Pierson had her best game of the season. It was great to see her step up. It's always nice when girls get their first varsity points. And Haley Dyne did that with a 3-pointer in the second quarter and freshman Lauren Thomas hit a bucket in the fourth quarter for her first points.”
Pierson led Corry with four points, five rebounds and an assist. Elchynski had three points and two rebounds. Dyne had three points two rebounds. Brady had two points, four rebounds and an assist. Thomas had two points.
The Beavers had been pretty good with injuries this season but they are starting to pile up now as another player went down with an injury on Saturday. Corry will be down to 13 players for today.
The girls have another tough opponent on the schedule tonight as the Erie Royals come to town. JV starts at 6 p.m. with varsity to follow.
