The Southmoreland girls basketball team tasted the sweetness of victory for the first time this season.

The Scotties were victorious, 42-36, over Northgate in the opening round of the Geibel Holiday Tournament Dec. 27.

Julea Claycomb paced Southmoreland with 11 points, and Brooke Cottem added 10. Tiana Morgan led Northgate with 10 points.

“I'm very, very happy with the girls' performance and their effort,” said coach Brian Pritts. “It was a much deserved win for them. They played together. They moved the ball. They did the little things we've been stressing all season.”

The 42 points was the highest total amassed for Southmoreland on the season.

The girls did fall in their previous contest, 51-25, to Connellsville in a game played Dec. 22. Cottom led Southmoreland in that game with nine points.
