PORT ROYAL - It was a Senior Night to remember Friday for Molly Arnold, Bethany Saner and Lauren Breon as the Juniata Mennonite girls basketball team posted a giant 46-7 win over Allegheny Christian Athletic Association opponent New Covenant.
"I was pleased with our ball movement. Even some girls who didn't score did some nice things," Juniata Mennonite coach Andy Meiser said.
Juniata Mennonite had a 33-5 lead at the half, and only allowed two more points for the young and inexperience New Covenant team through the rest of the game.
Alexis Hahn-Kline had a career- and game-high 16 points.
Juniata Mennonite (7-2, 4-1) hosts Meadowbrook Christian on Monday. The varsity boys will not have a game that night.
Selinsgrove 34, Midd-West 31
SELINSGROVE - Midd-West went scoreless in the second and third quarters of a girls basketball game Friday against Selinsgrove, and that was the difference in the 34-31 loss.
Although Chloe Wagner had a team-high 15 points fo the Mustangs, it wasn't enough to put Midd-West over the edge for the Heartland Conference win.
In JV action, Selinsgrove took the 17-14 win.
Midd-West hosts Milton Tuesday.
Bellwood-Antis 89, Mount Union 21
BELLWOOD - Mount Union had a lot of turnovers, and Inter-County Conference opponent Bellwood-Antis was unstoppable offensively as the Trojans took an 89-21 girls basketball loss Friday.
The Blue Devils posted 42 points in the first quarter, and it was a deficit the Trojans could never overcome as they scored no more than eight points in a single quarter.
"We had a lot of turnovers. We didn't play with much heart. That was pretty much the story," Mount Union coach Jenny Cunningham said.
The JV match also went to Bellwood-Antis, 47-17. Riley Woodward and Reegan McCaulley led the Trojans with six points apiece.
Mount Union (6-8) hosts West Branch Monday.
New Covenant 52, Juniata Mennonite 31

New Covenant's Nathan Tice lit up the board for 24 points, while Juniata Mennonite's usual high scorer Adrian Martin was held to eight.
"Most of his shots were inside the shot. Just little shots, little jumpers. They mostly worked the ball inside all night long," Juniata Mennonite coach Dennis Zimmerman said of Tice.
Juniata Mennonite was led by Kevin Burkholder's 14 points.
The Lions (1-5, 1-3) travel to Sunbury Christian Tuesday.
Belleville Mennonite's girls basketball game scheduled for Friday at Johnstown Christian was cancelled, as was Mifflin County's swim meet at Brookville, which was scheduled for today.
