The Southwestern Lady Warriors have been pretty much on a roll since the 2019-’20 high school basketball season tipped off, and Junior Molden’s club is showing no signs whatsoever of slowing down.
Playing on the road on Thursday night against a very good Danville squad, Molden and crew rallied from a 22-16 halftime deficit, to come off the mat and post an impressive, 49-46 win over the Lady Admirals.
That win over Danville improved Southwestern to 12-1 on the season, and ran the Lady Warriors win streak to 10 games in a row.
Down by that six-point margin at the half, Southwestern got back in this one in the third quarter, outscoring the Lady Ads 18-9 in the frame, to take a 34-31 lead into the fourth stanza.
At that point, Southwestern was in great shape, and the Lady Warriors did it by throwing a very balanced scoring attack at the Lady Admirals.
Point guard Alexa Smiddy led the way for Southwestern with 11 points, while Kennedy Harris chipped in with 10 points.
Regi Cundiff tallied nine points in the win, while Kaylee Young added eight points, helping the Lady Warriors to keep that win streak in tact.
On Saturday afternoon, Southwestern will return to action facing Bethlehem High School at 12:30 p.m. at Franklin County High School in the Central Metals/Penn Station Shootout.
