Lebanon 50, Ephrata 27

On Saturday afternoon, the Cedars traveled to Ephrata as they looked to earn their tenth straight victory. They didn’t waste time getting out in front, with Liliana Harrison scoring 8 in the 1st quarter as Lebanon built a 12-point lead. By halftime, the Cedars held a 32-9 advantage over the Mounts. Olive Brandt scored 10 in the half to lead Lebanon. The rest of the game was played much more closely, but the significant lead at the midway point was too much for Ephrata to come back from. Coach Walborn used the opportunity to extend her rotation, including resting Kailah Correa for the entirety of the 4th quarter.

Four Cedars scored in double-figures. Brandt led the way with 12 points.

Lebanon (12-2) will look for their thirteenth straight victory when they host Hershey on Monday night.

New Covenant 59, Our Lady of the Cross 47

Friday night marked the first meeting between LebCo’s two PIAA-approved private schools as Our Lady of the Cross, coached by the legendary Patti Hower, visited New Covenant. Speaking to Coach Nicole Buffenmeyer, New Covenant’s second-year head coach, after the game, she said, “I knew that Coach Hower would have her team ready to play, and I stressed this repeatedly to my team.”

The game lived up to the expectations and offered the fans in attendance exciting back-and-forth action. The Flames led at halftime, 35-25. Still, they knew that the lead wasn’t safe, especially considering Our Lady’s Riley Hatzfeld‘s ability to score despite being heavily guarded. To make it more of a precarious situation, New Covenant freshman Qynne Demler picked up her fourth foul with three minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter after scoring 23 in the 1st half. As Our Lady began to make a run, New Covenant’s Miracle Hershey stepped up to provide leadership, rebounding, and 7 points in the quarter. Demler reentered the game early in the 4th quarter and was told by her coach to remain aggressive, a message she responded to by scoring 7 points down the stretch. The speedster Hershey also remained active on defense, coming up with key steals and baskets in transition to stave off the comeback.

Demler finished the game with 33 points. Hershey provided 17 points, with 11 coming after the half. Hatzfeld scored 35 for Our Lady.

New Covenant (6-4) will host Harrisburg Christian on Tuesday. Our Lady of the Cross continues its inaugural season, hosting Alliance Christian on Thursday.

The game was played much more evenly in the 3rd quarter as the Falcons retained a 14-point lead going into the 4th. With a tough free throw shooting night by Crest, McCaskey was able to cut some points off of their deficit but could not get close enough to make it interesting.

Columbia 74, Annville-Cleona 16

On Thursday, Annville had to travel to Columbia to face the defending Lancaster Lebanon League Champions, still featuring the Droege twins. This was a less-than-ideal match-up, as the Tide showed why they are the favorites to repeat this season. After three quarters of play, Columbia held a commanding 62-5 lead. The 4th quarter was played more evenly as Columbia pulled the Droeges off the floor. The sisters combined for 36 points through the three quarters they played.

Palmyra 40, Mechanicsburg 34

A night after their game was delayed due to a leak in the gym ceiling, Palmyra hosted  Mechanicsburg (10-2). The Wildcats entered the game undefeated in the Keystone. With the Lady Cougars also undefeated in league play, the game would decide first place at the midway point of the season.

Lebanon 52, Penn Manor 37

On Tuesday evening, Lebanon took to the road seeking their 10th win of the season. Their hosts were the Penn Manor Comets, a 2-11 team that, despite their record, has been feisty this season, recently picking up a win over Hempfield. Lebanon would not take any chances and built a 10-point lead by the end of the 1st quarter. It was a team effort, as four Lebanon starters combined for the 14 points. In the 2nd quarter, Penn Manor responded and slowed down Lebanon, leaving the Cedars with a 23-15 lead at halftime. Coming out of the half, Lebanon began to break away with another balanced scoring attack that ended with an 18-point 3rd quarter.

After defeating Lebanon earlier this season, Manheim Township has asserted itself as one of the top teams in Section 1. Recently, they suffered a league loss to Hempfield. Cedar Crest hosted the Streaks on Tuesday night, hoping to hand them a second loss in Section play. The Streaks, knowing that they had a target on their back, got an early advantage, holding an 8-point lead after one quarter of play. The 2nd quarter was played much more evenly, as the Crest defense slowed Township. At halftime, the Falcons found themselves down 23-14. The 3rd quarter was much of the same, with Township adding another point to their lead as the two teams entered the 4th quarter. As the offenses opened up in the final quarter, Kaila Francis scored 5 points in the comeback attempt. Unfortunately, it would not be enough, and the Streaks were able to defend their home court.
