Defensive Stop Seals Victory For Trinity

Posted on:

With 1:38 remaining in the fourth quarter, freshman Alyssa Clutter made two free throws to give Trinity a 34-33 lead. The Hillers held onto that that against visiting South Fayette, not allowing them to get a shot off in the final seconds for a crucial Section 1-5A win on Monday night.

The win gave Trinity sole possession of third place in the section standings over South Fayette.

Although scoring was at a premium, the Hillers knocked down their shots when they needed to. In the final quarter, they converted on 7 of 8 free throw attempts.

Leading the way for Trinity was sophomore Kaylin Venick with a game-high 13 points. Freshman Mia Webber led the Lions with 10 points.

With the win, Trinity improves to 8-7 overall and 6-3 in the section. The Hillers will travel to Montour on Thursday for a section game at 7:30 p.m.

South Fayette drops to 10-6 overall and 5-4 in the section. The Lions will travel to Allderdice in a non-section game on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
