Danville girls pull away in second half

(Continued)

The Danville offense also caught fire after the break and outscored the Braves, 31-23, as the perimeter game and the performance of Renz at both ends of the court was too much for the Shikellamy to handle.

Leading by seven points heading into the final quarter, Liz Pavis sandwiched two field goals around free throws from Renz and Keeley to push the advantage to 37-24. The Braves' offense went cold from the floor and did not register a point until Kelsey Zimmerman's 3-pointer with three minutes left to play, but any chance of a comeback was dashed by a 12-0 run to open the quarter that all but sealed Shikellamy's fate.

The Ironmen got balanced scoring in the final eight minutes as Renz, Pavis and Siobhan Bross all tallied five points to offset Angstadt's heroics, who collected eight points in the final two minutes to move into second place on the Shikellamy girls all-time scoring list behind Amanda Fleming.

Keeley led the Ironmen, who take on the winner of tonight's Shamokin Area-Athens game in the final later this week, with 13 points and Renz, who is just a freshman contributed 12 points and 14 rebounds.

Shikellamy's lone player in double figures was Angstadt with 18. She also grabbed 12 rebounds.
