Mount Hebron rips No. 17 Glenelg GIRLS BASKETBALL

January 14, 1995|By Katherine Dunn | Katherine Dunn,Sun Staff Writer

No. 19 Mount Hebron wore down No. 17 Glenelg in a hurry last night en route to a 67-45 Howard County league victory.

Visiting Glenelg took a six-point lead midway through the second quarter. But trying to keep up defensively with the Vikings' high-scoring duo of Alisha Mosley and Kathy Doyle took its toll.

"We just ran out of gas," said Glenelg coach Randy Wallenhorst, who sat veterans Jill Younce (16 points) and Kim Brown (eight points) with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter.

"Kim and Jill were tired. Everybody got tired. Mount Hebron is a very patient team. We ran a few times and got some turnovers and then we threw the ball away. That hurt."

The Gladiators (8-3 overall, 1-2 league) started losing ground before Brown and Younce sat down, but by the time they returned, the momentum was Mount Hebron's.

Glenelg led 21-15 when Kim Brown fed her sister Lauren with 3:42 left in the quarter, but the Gladiators did not score another point in the half.

Doyle, who finished with 23 points, made a great fake and slipped around her defender for a game-tying layup with 1:55 to go.

On the next possession, Mosley drove and got the foul but not the basket. Brown and Younce returned as Mosley missed both free throws.

But Mosley made up for it by feeding Doyle with a long pass for a 23-21 lead. She then hit Sarah Eberhart for a 16-footer and added a buzzer-beating follow for a 27-21 halftime lead.

Early in the second half, the Gladiators cut the margin to five on Kim Brown's transition layup, but they turned the ball over on their next two possessions against a furious man-to-man defense. The Vikings converted both turnovers to pull ahead 35-24.

In the half, Glenelg rarely got a second shot and it just could not contain Doyle and Mosley as the Vikings kept pulling further ahead.

Mosley finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds and six assists as the Vikings (7-3) remained unbeaten in three league games. This marked their second victory in a week over a team ranked higher after beating No. 14 Howard Monday.

"Mount Hebron is the best team we've played this year. We match up with them and they're not big, but they're very smart and experienced ball players -- and they hit their free throws," Wallenhorst said.

The Vikings were 13-17 from the line, including 10-10 in the fourth quarter.

While Doyle and Mosley continue to carry most of the scoring load, the Vikings also got big contributions from their other starters last night.

Forward Jenny Joyce had a season-best outing with 11 points and 10 rebounds. She exceeded her season average of 5.4 points with six in the first half.

Erin McGinnis had six points and 11 rebounds while Eberhart added eight points and three steals.
