Lady Pioneers Fall to West Liberty State

Full Box Score

The Lady Pioneers couldn’t hold on to their half time lead as they fell to the Lady Hilltoppers of West Liberty State, 53-47 in WVIAC WBB action. The Hilltoppers (11-4, 5-3) were paced by Renee Farina’s 11 points as she went over the 1,000 point mark for her career. Lisa Perry added 11 assists and Lauren Russell chipped in 7 points and 10 rebounds.

Glenville was led by a game high 12 points from both Donita Adams and Karina Kendrick. The pair each had 9 rebounds, as Kendrick was just one rebound short from her league leading 9th double-double.
Mallory Menendez added 10 points for the Lady Pioneers as again they struggled from the field shooting just 37% and a woeful 3-15 (20%) from the 3pt line. 
The opening half would find the Pioneers trailing 5-2 before going on a 25-8 spurt over the next 13 minutes to put them up 27-15. However, just like the losses in December Glenville State was unable to finish the half strongly as West Liberty State would quickly go on a 10-0 run over the last 3:03. Glenville once up 12 would have to settle for a two point halftime lead, at 25-23. 
After an Adams’ jumper put the Pioneers up four to start the 2nd half, WLSC would go on an 11-2 run over the next six minutes as a Russell free throw would give them a five point lead at 34-29. 
The Lady Pioneers would quickly answer as they would hold the Hilltoppers to without a field goal over the next five minutes, while getting a jumper from Kim Stephens and a 3 pointers from Menendez. The 5-0 spurt would pull GSC even with WLSC at 34 with 10:19 to go.
West Liberty State would then force the Pioneers into turnovers on three of their next four possessions as they went on a 12-4 run to put them up 46-38 with three minutes to go, and essentially put the game out of reach.
The Pioneers return to action Saturday as they take on Wheeling Jesuit. Tip Off is at 6pm
