With the holiday tournaments behind the local girls basketball teams, many squads are looking to maintain a high level of play.

Hampton

The Lady Talbots got a forfeit win over Valley, a gift that puts them at 3-0 on the section and 6-3 overall.

Hampton split the difference at their holiday tournament by beating Kiski, 48-38, a win that was preceded by a 34-24 loss to Burrell.

Hampton will be back in action at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 10 as it heads to Freeport for a section game.

Vincentian

The defending Class A WPIAL champions have yet to drop a game this season, ringing up a perfect 9-0 record.

The Lady Royals trounced Trinity Christian, 77-30, to push their section record to 3-0. Brenna Wise led all scorers with 22 points, and Kayla Key helped the Vincentian cause with 10 points.

Vincentian next plays at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 10, when it hosts Eden Christian.

The game will serve as a return to the North Hills for Eden's Aila Bradford, a Shaler resident.

Pine-Richland

The Lady Rams were on a four-game skid around the holiday tournament time, and a 50-38 loss to Butler evened the section record at 2-2. Caitlin McMaster scored 10 points against Butler, and Chelsea Rourek led the team with 11.

The Lady Rams will look to take a win in a local rivalry game against Hampton at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 12 and then improve their section mark at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 14 at Shaler.

Shaler

After stumbling out of the blocks this season, the Lady Titans have won two of three games, including winning the Hampton Holiday Tournament, 47-36, over Burrell.

Oakland Catholic spoiled the Lady Titans' three-game winning streak, 43-39. Andi Lydon led Shaler in that game with 10 points.

Shaler will play at 6:20 p.m. on Jan. 11 at North Allegheny then take part in the Gateway Tournament, which pits the Lady Titans against Deer Lakes at 3 p.m. on Jan. 12.
