RUSSELL, Pa. – Lily Triana poured in 26 points as North East earned a 65-38 Region 3 win over Eisenhower.

Rewatch the Game:

North East jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but Eisenhower cut the lead to 18-11 after the first quarter.

“The key (to the hot start) honestly was just passing to each other,” Triana said. “I think we shared the ball reall well and that helped us for sure.”

North East, which has won four straight, went on a 17-5 second quarter run, however, to assume control.

Triana, who was Player of the Game, talked about the win:

Triana scored 12 points in the first half and 14 points in the second half, while Gigi Gaston was also in double figures for the ‘Pickers with 14 points, while Kayla Forsythe added 13.

Lillian Smythe led Eisenhower with 10 points, while Mackenzie Dunn added nine and Clara Steinberg eight.
