Tune up Bishop Guilfoyle girls blow out Swissvale, 71-26 By Regis Donnelly Mirror Sports Correspondent For most people, the holidays are traditionally a time to relax. How- ever, for the Bishop Guilfoyle Lady Marauders, this holiday season will hardly be the time to kick back. Starting Tuesday, BG will have to play Marion Center, which was last year's District 6, Class AAA run- nerup, and then six days later will have to up for its tournament which features the likes of South Wiiliamsport, Butler and Western from Baltimore, which is ranked number four in the country by USA Today. The next three games should present the stiffest challenge that Guilfoyle has had to face in the young season, and if Saturday night's 71-26 victory over Swissvale is any indication, BG should be able to hold its own in those upcoming games. "We have three giant tasks in front of said Guilfoyle Coach John Frederick. "This (win) was a great lead in because I thought we put our game together." On Saturday, Guilfoyle totally dominated a Swissvale team that lost just one starter from last year's PIAA playoff team, "We feel we pounded a pretty good team said Frederick. "1 think beating a poor team is one thing, but beating a respectable team is different, and we feel good, about it. "We pounded them on the boards and they are a big added Frederick, whose team outre- bounded the Flashes 62-42. "We were careful with the ball. We com- mitted only 15 turnovers and forced them to commit 27. With a ratio like that we feel happy." Guilfoyle took command of the game from the beginning. The Lady Marauders led after the first quar- ter 17-7, and then increased that margin to 26 points, 40-14, at the half. The majority of the problem tor Swissvale was its inability to get its offense untracked. "We attribute a lot of that to Guilfoyle's good said Swissvale Coach Greg Smith. "Many times we got the ball into our big girl, but she couldn't make Ihem. It was great defense, so give all the credit to Guilfoyle." In the third quarter, Swissvale experienced a scoring drought. Af- ter hitting a bucket in the opening minutes of the second half, the Flashes didn't score again until (he opening minutes of the fourth quar- ter. In the fourth, Swissvale man- aged just 10 points. Meanwhile, the Lady Marauders scored 18 and 13 points respectively in the final two quarters. "We are a few light-years away from BG's admitted Smith. "This was a good experience for us and hopefully we can profit from One area that Frederick was not pleased with was his team's foul shooting. Guilfoyle shot ll-for-27 from the line. "We need to start making our foul shots and improving our inside Frederick said. "We're still missing easy shots that we shouldn't be." GAME NOTES: BG upped its record to 4-1 Swissvale is 6-4 The Lady Mauraders were led in scoring by Trish Kiley's 15 points while Julie Leipolii added 13 Gretchen Hess was Swissvale's top scorer with nine Leipold was the game's high rebounder with 17 Guilfoyle shot 39 per cent (30-77) from (he floor while Swissvale shot 23 per cent (10-43) Louise "Weeze" Gates led BG with 5 as- sists Junior Xrny Carroll missed Saturday's game due to a severe bout with the flu She was in the hospital suffering from dehydration Kris Willnecker suffered a head injury in the first quarter, but re- turned to action in the second half Sophomores Sandi Clossin (2) and Amy Kauffman (2) scored their first points as varsity players... The Guilfoyle jayvees remained un- defeated (5-0) with a 52-21 win Kauffman was the game's high scorer with 16 points. Swissvale Hess 4 1-9 B, Smith 2 2-2 6, Connell 1 2-4 4.

The winners came out of the locker room at halftime and went on a 12-0 spree to erase Purchase Line's 32-28 advantage. "We came out and started playing like we're capable of said Bishop Carroll Coach Deb Yesenosky. "We were just as flat as a pancake in the first half." Panek, a 6-foot junior guard, shared game-high scoring honors with Purchase Line's Carla Krolick, who was joined in double figures by teammates Sharon Brickell with 14 points and Bethh Fyock with 11. "We're getting balanced per- formances from Panek in every aspect of her said Yesenosky. "She's averaging double figures in rebounding as a guard and she's averaging five assists and four steals. She's shooting really well, too." Panek leads Carroll in scoring with a 21.4 average. Purchase Line Fyock 1 9-11 II, Smith 0 0-1 0, Krolick 11 4-6 26. Brickell 5 4-10 14, Peles 1 2-3 4.
