Waynedale Takes Opening Night Win At Cougars Den
OLIVESBURG -- A quality matchup between two teams with big goals for the new season saw Waynedale come away with an opening night victory at the Cougars Den, knocking off Crestview 48-39 in their season tipoff.
A hot shooting performance by our Scout Construction Player of the Game, senior guard Laney Murphy helped build the Golden Bears a 16-6 first quarter cushion and a halftime lead of 34-25. Murphy scored 16 of her game-high 20 points in the first two frames, knocking down four triples to fuel her squad.
The Cougars would trim the deficit down to four points on a few occasions in the second half with senior Kennedi Goon putting up a team-best 15 points while blocking five shots, but Waynedale always had an answer to stay in front. Only five Bears scored with Kelsey Wolfe adding 10, Alysse Geiser nine and Brooklyn Troyer seven, but a huge defensive effort in the third quarter helped them cruise to victory.
