Girls basketball: Shik's Angstadt gets her 1,000th point in loss

(Continued)

Angstadt pumped her fist and ran toward the side of the court opposite the benches as her teammates flooded the court. When she was about to be mobbed, Angstadt said, she realized she'd become the sixth Shikellamy girl to score 1,000 career points.

"That was dramatic, wasn't it?" Braves coach Lew Dellegrotti said. "It was fitting."

The basket gave Shikellamy a 13-12 lead, but the Braves went nearly four minutes of the second quarter without scoring. Still, when Angstadt fed Andrea Amerman in transition, they trailed 17-16.

Danville outscored the Braves 7-2 to close the half, then opened the third quarter with a staggering 14-2 run.

"That's exactly what we needed, to build our confidence coming out of the half," said Bross, recalling Danville's 46-37 loss at home Jan. 5 in which the Ironmen had an eight-point halftime lead.

The Ironmen (13-3, 7-2 HAC-I) shot 9-of-16 from the field and did not commit a turnover in the third quarter. Donie Ann Keeley made a pair of 3-pointers, Kylie Romeo buried another and Renz scored at least six points for the third consecutive period.

"The third quarter I thought we played our best quarter of the year," said Danville coach Steve Moser. "We fed off the threes and defense, and everyone got into the flow. When we ran, we made ducks."

Danville scored on six straight trips at one point, including threes by Romeo and Keeley, and two Renz buckets, and led 45-24 with two minutes left in the third.

"Those three 3-pointers in that short period of time killed us," said Dellegrotti, whose team dropped to 10-6, 5-4. "They played well. They're tough; Renz is tough."

In addition to her points and rebounds, Renz had four steals and four blocked shots.
