H.S. girls basketball: Danville weathers storm to win HAC-I crown


Danville, who is averaging 51.8 points this week, is 17-0 this season when scoring 48 or more points in a game.

"This has been the best week ever and I am really proud of everyone," Romeo said. "This week has really helped our confidence. We're on cloud nine. We can do almost anything at this moment."

While Romeo did not score in the second half of the game, here defense forced turnovers that her teammates feed off.

"Our defense stepped up, especially in the fourth," she said. "This week has been tough but we were able to get some rest for our legs on Thursday with substitutions and that seemed to help."

"Siobhan seems to find the open player," Moser added.

Bross, who scored at least one basket per quarter, took some advice from Moser to change up her game. Instead of driving to the right, she faked right and drove left. By doing this, it forced the defenders momentum to take her to the right, opening the left side and allowing Bross to drive to the basket for a layup.

"Most girls can't guard to the left and Coach Moser told me to drive that way even though my natural movement is to go to the right," she added.

Shamokin, which had won the last two HAC-I championships, came out flat, scoring six points in the first quarter and trailed by 10 heading into the second.

Yacko and Olivia Bonshock, who scored eight points, were the only players other than Kelsey Forbes to score for the Indians in the first half.

After making their third-quarter run, Shamokin went scoreless in the fourth. They had shots that either hit the front end of rim or rimmed out. Their lone trip to the free-throw line was not successful.
