Westhill girls basketball topples CBA

Four Warriors score in double figures in 54-41 win

— On the offensive end, the Warriors had near-perfect balance, with four players in double figures. Ross led with 14 points, going six-for-six from the foul line in the closing stretch as she added six steals, five assists and nine rebounds.

Kelly Mascari, the only new starter this season, had 12 points and five rebounds. Peebles also had 12 points, putting up eight rebounds as Dougherty had 11 points and, like Peebles, managed eight boards.

Marisa Romeo paced CBA with 11 points before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. Kelsey Johnson and Alyssa Pitonzo closely followed with 10 points apiece.

Two nights earlier, Westhill had ripped Fulton. With a steady attack and all kinds of defensive pressure, the Warriors built a 29-13 halftime lead and did not let up, watching eight different players pick up field goals before it was done.

Ross, as usual, did a bit of everything, with 15 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and four steals. Peebles led Westhill with 20 points, while Maggie Tripodi contributed nine points, four assists and three steals.

Before entering OHSL Liberty division play, Westhill has one more non-league contest, going to East Syracuse-Minoa next Thursday night.
