YOUNGSVILLE, Pa. – Kane opened the game with a 19-0 run en route to a 46-16 win at Youngsville on Friday.

Both teams struggled to find the scoreboard early as the first three minutes of the game were played without a point. A switch to a full-court defense paid big dividends for the Wolves as they were able to generate turnovers that led to quick transition buckets.

Madison VanGuilder got the Eagles on the board with just over 10 seconds to play in the first quarter, but Kane led 21-2 after the opening eight minutes.

The Wolves extended the lead to 28-6 by halftime and were never challenged in the second half.

Melea Jenkins led the Eagles with five points while VanGuilder and Riley Robinault added four points each.

Hailey Hillman led Kane with 10 points, Cara Jekielek and Maya Smith each had eight points, and Mia Anderson had seven points.

Kane won the junior varsity game, 33-21. Robinault led the Eagles’ effort with 13 points.

Youngsville returns to the court Monday when they host Saegertown.
