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 runnerup, and then six days later will have to gear up for its tournament which features the likes of South Williamsport. 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 us,” 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 P1AA playoff team.
“We feel we pounded a pretty good team tonight,” said Frederick. “I 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 team,” added Frederick, whose team outre-bounded the Flashes 62-42. "We were careful with the ball. We committed 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 rrtargin to 26 points, 40-14, at the half. The majority of the problem for Swissvale was its inability to get its offense untracked.
”We attribute a lot of that to Guilfoyle’s good defense,” said Swissvale Coach Greg Smith. “Many times we got the ball into our big girl, but she couldn’t make them. It was great defense, so give all the credit to Guilfoyle.”
In the third quarter, Swissvale experienced a scoring drought. After hitting a bucket in the opening minutes of the second half, the Flashes didn’t score again until the opening minutes of the fourth quarter. In the fourth, Swissvale managed just IO 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 level,” 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 game,” Frederick said. “We’re still missing easy shots that we shouldn’t be.”
