Warriors off to 8-0 start, surpass 60 points for fourth time this season

It was a can’t miss kind of night for the Edgewood Warriors (8-0, 5-0) as they jumped out to a 29-4 lead against Pymatuning Valley (4-2, 2-1) on Friday and did not look back. The final score: 62-32.

Avery Vencill and Annie Johnston were nearly perfect from the outside, drilling five first-quarter three pointers for Edgewood. The pair would combine for 29 points (Johnston 15, Vencill 14). The Lakers defense trying to slow senior guard Katie McCollister, made for some open shots in the nearside corner several times for Vencill. All of Johnston’s points would come from beyond the arc.

McCollister got her points anyway, dropping a game-high 16 and spread out fairly even over the first three quarters. Freshman Carly Kray with some key minutes off the bench scored seven points, including a three pointer before the end of the first half.

Nine different players scored for Pymatuning Valley. Junior Zoey Painter led with nine. The Lakers lone senior Leah DeMoss finished with five points – all in the first half.

For Edgewood, it is the fourth game scoring 60 points or more, with a season-high of 75 coming December 12th against Lakeside. The Lakers are no strangers to high-scoring themselves, hanging a high of 76 on St. John in the third game of the season.

UP NEXT: PV will have another tough test at Geneva, Wednesday, December 27th at 6:45 pm. Edgewood hosts St. John, Thursday, Dec. 28 at 6:45 pm.
