COAL TOWNSHIP -- After a pair of tough league losses earlier this week Shikellamy needed to get back to its winning ways, and the Braves did just that at Shamokin on Saturday.

Angstadt got Shikellamy (12-7, 6-5 HAC-I) going by scoring 10 of her points in the first half. The Braves led 14-2 after one quarter.
Then in the second half Yerger took control, scoring 13 of her points, after Shamokin (10-8, 8-3) used a good second quarter to cut its deficit to six at half.
In addition, Raven Fatool collected 13 rebounds along with scoring five points.
Kelsey Yacko led the Indians with 16 points.

Aurand recorded a team-high 17 points in addition to grabbing 10 rebounds.
The Bulldogs (9-8) led by one (28-27) at the half.
The loss drops the Seals to 5-12, 4-7 in the HAC-I.
