GIRARD, Pa. – Mackenzie Dunn’s game-high 20 points led a trio of Eisenhower players in double figures as the Knights picked up a Region 3 win, 63-37, at Girard.

Eisenhower led 28-20 at the half, then outscored Girard 37-17 in the second half. Dunn was even with 10 points in each half.

“Tonight was an all-around great team effort,” Eisenhower coach DJ Steinberg said. “Mac did a great job down low and on the boards. Mac is starting to play with more finesse which makes her really tough to deal with defensively.”

Clara Steinberg finished with 12 points and Samantha Childs had 11, thanks in part to three 3-pointers.

“Girls played much more aggressively this game and played really well as a team,” DJ Steinberg said. “They passed really well and were patient, defense was aggressive. Sam Childs had a hot hand, was really nice to see her hit shots like that.”

Bella Marino and Laney Belcher each added seven points for the Knights.

Lily Polk had 16 points, and Peyton Kalicky had 14 for the Yellowjackets.
