Roundup: Lady Warriors beat Farrell; Mercer, Wilmington grab 2-AA wins


Herald staff

- — Brookfield borders Mercer County. But thus far this basketball season, Brookfield has bullied Mercer County cagers.

Brookfield High girls’ basketball team ventured into E.J. McCluskey Gymnasium Thursday night and stymied the host Farrell Lady Steelers, 58-27.

Lauren Hawley hit four 3-point field goals en route to a team-high 18 points and 6-foot-1 post Ashley Kirila contributed a 17-point, 8-rebound line — all in the 1st half.

OHSAA independent Brookfield (9-3) has beaten West Middlesex, Sharon and Farrell thus far this season. The triumph over Sharon’s Lady Tigers occurred in the title tilt of its own holiday tournament.

Danielle DiCristofaro dished out 3 assists, as did Destiny May for Brookfield..

“We’re tryin’ to get some continuity, and I thought they played really well, spread the ball around and we got some good shooting out of Hawley,” Brookfield bench boss Shawn Hammond assessed. “We were able to push the ball and we executed.”

Brookfield built a 34-14 bulge by the break by connecting on 10 of 23 floor shots and committing only a half-dozen miscues. A somewhat sloppy 2nd half inflated the latter figure to 16 by game’s end. But Brookfield bucketed 20 of 44 floor shots (45.4 percent), led by Hawley’s 7–for-11 long-range marksmanhip and Kirila’s 6-for-11 effort.

Farrell (2-7) was forced into 23 turnovers, and the young Lady Steelers scored almost twice as many free throws (13) as field goals (7). For Farrell, Tatyana Page produced 6 points.

The Lady Steelers suffered a scare when Bria Gambill turned her right ankle a minute into the tilt and did not return. Though she appeared primed to try to play in the 2nd half, she did not, and her status is uncertain.

Hammond is saavy enough to realize if you stay in the game long enough, eventually everything evens out.

“Believe me, we’ve taken our lumps. We lost one last year to (Lady Steelers’ skipper Eddie Turosky) over at our place by one,” Hammond recalled. “We always battle with Eddie’s teams, and I like playing this game, I like playing (Farrell).”

Brookfield will be part of the Struthers sectional, Hammond said, and could potentially host an opening-round game. — By Ed Farrell, Herald assistant sports editor.
