Elderton girls top Freeport

| Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011

Elderton sophomore Jill Glover made 13 of 16 free throws in the fourth quarter to help the Lady Bobcats defeat host Freeport, 42-32, and secure sole possession of third place in Section 1-AA on Monday night.

Glover finished with a game-high 15 points, and Brianna Switzer added 13 for Elderton (9-4, 5-2). The Lady Bobcats played without senior Paige Baker, who missed the game with a possible concussion, and they lost junior forward Lauren Schultheis (6 points) to foul trouble early in the contest. But a 19-point final quarter made the difference for Elderton.

"I think there's a lot of room for improvement yet, but that was a very gutsy win for us," coach Jim Callipare said.

Jessica Aulicino led Freeport (6-7, 4-3) with 12 points.
