Girls basketball: Braves hold off Seals for playoff berth

(Continued)

After a miss on the last Seals' possession of the third quarter, Savanna Foor stuck with the ball as it deflected off her teammates, landing back in her hands and Foor connected from the top of the key.

Early in the first quarter with the game tied at six, Chaney set the tone for the rest of the game, forcing a tie-up as Nikki Krebs drove into the lane for Selinsgrove.

Fatool quickly knocked down a jumper after the tie-up and Kierra Smith scored four quick points to give the Braves an early 12-6 lead.

Smith scored a game-high 14 points, finding her way to the rim and crashing the boards inside.

"Kierra Smith came up big for us tonight," Braves coach Lew Delegrotti said. "She did a great job."

Smith closed an 11-2 Braves' run in the first half, staying with her own miss and getting another shot off, connecting on her second try.

Krebs led Selinsgrove with 10 points, while Laura Long and Jessica Kerstetter each scored six points inside for the Seals.
