Lady Bisons Defeated 75-34 by Lady Dutch

ST. MARYS – Kayla Hoohuli, the third leading scorer in District 9 girls basketball history and a Clearfield nemesis the last four seasons, posted the 11th 30-point game of her senior year to lead St. Marys past the shorthanded Lady Bisons 75-34 Saturday night.
 
The two-time All American Awards and Engraving/D9Sports.com District 9 Player of the Year and 2010 All-State first teamer was on fire from the start and poured in 33 points, with eight of her 12 field goals coming from three-point territory.
 
Hoohuli, also had eight rebounds and six assists, canned 15 points as the Lady Dutch put the first 20 points on the Dutch Oven scoreboard and raced to a 30-3 lead after one quarter.
 
St. Marys, 16-1 and sitting atop the RRR Roadhouse/D9Sports.com District 9 Rankings, took a 40-15 lead into the second half and, with Hoohuli scoring 12 points, expanded that with a 23-9 advantage in the third quarter.
 
Hoohuli, one her way to another District 9 scoring crown with a 30.3 average, has increased her career total to 2,436 points.
 
Breanna Peters provided the bulk of the Lady Bison offense with a career-high 19 points.
 
Clearfield, already missing leading scorer Dakota Farmery and reserve forward Ciara Marsh because of injuries, lost point guard Lisa Ambuski in the first quarter. She suffered a head injury in a collision with another player and was held out of further action for precautionary reasons but has been cleared to play this week.
 
Marsh, who sat out her second game with an arm injury, also should return Tuesday when the Lady Bisons host Philipsburg-Osceola in the first of four games in five days.
 
Farmery’s status was to be determined after a visit to a foot specialist Monday. She was injured in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s game against Tyrone in Weiss Gym, but x-rays on her ankle were negative.
 
The Lady Bisons, now 2-14, will travel to Bald Eagle Area Wednesday and then be at home against Central Mountain Thursday and Juniata Saturday.
 
Because of Clearfield’s depleted roster, there was no junior varsity game.
