Huntingdon’s Big Second Half Spells Defeat for Lady Bison

HUNTINGDON — Led by the veteran backcourt duo of juniors Kynnedy Miller and Allie Troup, Huntingdon pulled away in the second half to defeat Clearfield 72-42 in high school girls basketball action Friday night.

The Lady Bison, on the road for the fourth game in a row, played the undefeated Lady Bearcats on even terms for about 20 minutes.

They were down only 27-25 at the half, but the Lady Bearcats took command midway through the third quarter to take a 44-35 lead into the final period, when their fullcourt zone press paid even more dividends in a 28-point outburst.

Miller claimed scoring laurels for the Mountain League game with 21 points, including eight in the third period when she canned three of her six three-pointers.

Troup chipped in 15 points, and Kaitlyn McElroy added 11 for the Lady Bearcats, who are 2-0 in the league and 4-0 overall.

For Clearfield (1-3, 0-2 ML), playmaker Alayna Ryan led the way with 19 points, six assists and six steals.

The Lady Bison will play their home opener Monday against Brookville, which defeated them 54-30 in the Brookville Tip-Off Tournament last Friday.

Huntingdon won the junior varsity game 41-18. Paige Rhine had six points for Clearfield.
