Local roundup: Penn State women fall to Rutgers

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State put up a tough fight against Big Ten-leading Rutgers, but the Scarlet Knights went on a late run to defeat the Nittany Lions, 62-57, Thursday at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Senior Siyeh Frazier led three Lady Lions in double figures with 14 points. Junior Kamaria McDaniel scored 11, while classmate Alisia Smith added 10.

Penn State held Rutgers to their second-lowest field goal percentage in a game against a Big Ten team this season at 37.5%. The Nittany Lions also held the Big Ten’s leading scorer in Arella Guirantes to 10 points, her lowest scoring effort of the season. She avearaged 19.7 points per game entering Thursday’s game.

“We talked in the locker room about how being that close doesn’t cut it. We’re getting there, we’re getting better, but at the end of the day we have to approach these games with some confidence that we can get the W,” Penn State coach Carolyn Kieger said.

Penn State is now 7-10 and 1-5 in the Big Ten.

“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made this year, but now we have to expect to win, and not play to not lose. We have to come in the gam ready to take some of these Ws because we can play,” Kieger said. “Rutgers is at the top fo the league and I thought we played them pretty well on the defensive end, but we have to have a little bit more confidence and a little bit more grit and come away with some big plays at the end.”

Rutgers was led by Jordan Wallac’es 12 points and Khadaizha Sanders’ 11.

• In girls basketball, Elle Binford scored 17 points, but Canton fell, 50-22 to Northeast Bradford. Aislyn Williams and Julie Brown each had two points.

Sayre defeated North Penn-Liberty, 57-30. Eva Rice led Liberty with nine points. The Redskins were led by Emily Sutryk’s 21 points, 15 of which came from 3-pointers.

• In boys basketball, Bucktail lost to Northumberland Christian, 78-50. Gabe Conway scored 16 for the Bucks and Devin Serafini added 11.

• In high school wrestling, Muncy topped rival Montgomery, 49-15. Tristan Ditzler Cael Hembury Chase Crawley and Ryyce Vollman each pinned their Red Raider opponents. Ethan Gush and Jacob Blair collected tech falls. Devon Deem picked up a quality win over Christian Good, 8-5, and Kade Drick wrapped up the dual with a 50-second fall at 160 pounds.

Milton racked up five pins and two forfeits in seven consecutive matches between 170 and 113 pounds to defeat Shamokin, 51-25.

Pardoe won the 50 free in 25.63 and Engel won in the 1-meter diving competition with a score of 179.60.
