WELLSVILLE — The Lady Eagles avenged a loss earlier this season by topping Burlington Tuesday.
The Wellsville High School girls basketball team thumped Burlington at home, 58-52.
“The girls really stepped up,” Brock Campbell, WHS head girls basketball coach, said. “Early in the year Burlington beat us by 32, but we knew we were a much better team than that.”
Wellsville outscored Burlington 17-10 in the second quarter, and 17-12 in the fourth to cap the win.
Guards Sydney Dywer, senior, and Demi Aamold, sophomore, led the Lady Eagle offense. Dwyer finished with 21 points, and Aamold had 20. Dywer scored 16 of her points in the second half.
Burlington was led by Kirsten Young, junior, who had 17 points, only two of which were scored in the fourth quarter.
“Madie McCoy really stepped up for us on the defensive end,” Campbell said. “She helped us hold their best scorer, Young, to 17 points. Sydney Dwyer and Demi Aamold did a great job of attacking the basket and getting to the rim for us.”
