Woodland Hills always seems to start the season a bit slowly, and this year was no exception.
After the Wolverines' 63-33 victory over McKeesport (5-5, 0-3), though, maybe Woodland Hills (3-7, 1-3) is starting to heat up.
“My teams normally play better after the Christmas tournament because we're more in shape,” Woodland Hills coach Korie Morton-Rozier said. “We don't play a lot of fall ball and summer ball, so it takes us eight games or so to start to mesh and play well together.”
Rachelle Price-Wheeler led three Woodland Hills players in double figures with 16 points, and Desiree Garland added 15 and Delrika Jones-Curry 14.
Nassiah Bray was the only Tigers player in double digits with 11.
Thomas Jefferson 70, Ringgold 45 — Chase Winovich scored a game-high 21 points to help the Jaguars (6-3, 3-0) keep pace with fellow Section 4-AAA unbeatens Steel Valley and West Mifflin.
Thomas Jefferson (6-3, 3-0) also got 17 points from Jason Horan and 10 from Joe Carroll.
West Mifflin 62, B elle Vernon 33 — The Titans had an easy time with the Leopards as Ryan Maha scored 13 points to lead three players in double figures. West Mifflin (8-2, 4-0) will host Steel Valley (8-2, 3-0) in a first-place showdown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Mount Pleasant 69, You gh 5 0 — Yough guard Ben D'Amico scored 17 points, but it wasn't enough as the Cougars fell to 4-7 overall and 1-3 in Section 3-AAA.
Clairton 65, Mapletown 37 — Bryon Clifford scored 19 points to lead three Bears players in double figures as Clairton (3-1, 1-0) overcame a slow start to win its Section 3-A opener.
Jujuan Bray scored 16 points, and Aaron Matthews 12 for the Bears.
Steel Valley 75, S outh Alleghe ny 46 — Ajan Smith scored 26 points, and Dorian Broadwater chipped in 12 to lead the Ironmen over the Gladiators.
