TOWAMENCIN- The girls’ basketball completely dominated in a Friday night matchup.  The game was over from the start as North Penn put on the defensive pressure to force turnovers and get lots of points in transition.

The North Penn Knights (5-3) took care of business at home and beat the Quakertown Panthers (4-5) 61-8.

“It’s been a rocky season in that we’ve had our ups and downs.  And we’ve really been focusing on trying to be more consistent.  Instead of playing to the talent level of the team, we’re playing North Penn basketball.  And today I feel like that’s really what we did,” head coach Jen Carangi said.

Junior Alaina Mullaly got things started scoring the game’s first two points on an open layup.  With 4:43 left in the first quarter, sophomore Laynie Doran stole the ball and scored a layup and the Knights had a 13-0 run to start the game.  Quakertown’s Kayla Horning made a layup to get the Panthers on the board for their first two points of the game.  The Knights finished the first quarter with a 28-2 lead.  The score increased to 36-2 in the second quarter and then both teams went scoreless for about 6 minutes. Doran broke that scoreless stretch with yet another layup and finished with 4 points .  Junior Carley Adams hit a 2-point jumper to extend the lead to 44-2 at the end of the half.

The Knights stayed hot in the second half and showed it right from the start.  Junior Val McGriff scored off an assist from Adams to start the half.  Adams made a three-point jumper to extend the lead to 51-2 with 6:11 left in the third quarter.  The Panthers got back on the score board with 5:46 left in third quarter off a free throw from Emma Pizzullo.  The lead reached 50 off a 2-point jumper from junior Megan Polenik.  And eventually the Knights extended the lead to 53 by the end of the game.

“We knew that we had to put our foot on the pedal the whole entire game and not let down at all and just keep going and not stop and run through our offenses, play fundamental sound defense and just come out and not let down at all,” senior Cayla Sharkey said.

The girls will be back in action on the road against the CB West Bucks on January 8th.  Coach Carangi spoke about her message for the next game.

“Just come ready to play.  I mean if we come ready to play all the time then [today’s score] could be the result.  When we allow ourselves to be distracted or we don’t focus and take care of business, then we could be in trouble,” Carangi said.

North Penn: McGriff 11 pts, Sharkey 10 pts, Lindsay 8 pts, Mullaly 8 pts, Adams 6 pts, Strobel 6 pts, Faison 4 pts, Doran 4 pts, Dunn 2 pts, Polenik 2 pts

Quakertown: Brianna Lefkoski 4 pts, Horning 2 pts, Sirrla 1 pt, Pizzullo 1 pt
