Strong first half powers Springside past E & S

Missing several players, including Division I point guard prospect Brittany Hrynko, the Carver High School of Engineering and Science fell behind the Springside Lions 15-2 in the first half of last Tuesday’s match-up in the Lou Cappiella Summer Basketball League.

Although the Lady Engineers had dug too deep a hole to mount a truly threatening rally, they played with much more composure after the break. They had a 17-15 edge in scoring in the second period, but Springside still prevailed by double digits, 30-19.

Springside was missing a floor general of its own, since incoming freshman point guard Julia Schumacher was not in attendance, but good defense and well-balanced scoring in the first half helped the Lions build up a significant advantage.

Junior Ashlee Hale had a field goal and two free throws, senior Brenna Coll knocked down a three-pointer, and Springside received single field goals from junior forwards Sydni Epps and Michelle Boggs, sophomore guard Alyssa Isackman, and freshman center Erin Garner.

A bucket on an inside move by Garner and transition lay-ups by Coll and junior Elana Roadcloud extended the Lions’ lead to 16 points (21-5) in the early minutes of the second period.

Coll, Roadcloud and Boggs are all transfer students who were unable to complete their careers at Cardinal Dougherty due the school’s permanent closure in June. A member of Dougherty’s last graduating class, forward Art Comas, has signed with the men’s hoops team at Chestnut Hill College. His older brother Dan has already been playing for the Griffins for two years.

After Springside went up 21-5 in last Tuesday’s tilt, E & S doubled its total with a three-pointer and a lay-up. The Lions quickly wiped out those gains thanks to a lay-up and free throw by Epps, and a score on a put-back by Roadcloud.

The Lady Engineers penetrated to the hoop several times and also added another trey to outscore Springside 9-4 the rest of the way, but the Lions still owned a comfortable margin at the end. Roadcloud finished with six points and Epps and Coll each had five. Boggs, Garner, and Hale each came away with four points, and Isackman had two.
