Girls basketball: Dragons rally to beat Panthers


"Miranda's shot was huge," Stamm said. "That gave us a lift heading to the fourth quarter."

Milton (12-8) would cut the lead to one early in the fourth quarter when Emily Baker converted a three-point play with 5:08 left in the contest, but the Black Panthers were hindered by their inability to hit foul shots (3-of-7 in the fourth, 7-of-17 for the game).

"Foul shots and missed layups were huge (for us)," Milton coach Aaron Slusser said. "We gave up nine offensive boards in the first half, but (Lewisburg) didn't score on any of them, but in the second half it really hurt us. Take away foul shots; we missed at least 10 layups. That's not going to get it done against a good team like Lewisburg."

Meanwhile, Lois Lesher and Kelleher converted on buckets on back-to-back possessions to push the lead back to 35-30. The Green Dragons then converted six-of-eight foul shots down the stretch to clinch the game.

Kelleher also had a team-high nine rebounds for Lewisburg. Kasey Conrad finished with 10 points for the Green Dragons.

Baker led the way for the Black Panthers with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Mackenna Miller added six points, six steals and three assists.
