Salisbury girls pick up second win of season

The Lady Falcons celebrated their second win of the season after downing Palisades 31-18 last week. The win gave Salisbury (2-14 overall, 2-11 Colonial) two wins in its last three games as the young team continues to show progress.

In the win, Salisbury saw balanced scoring with eight points from Tula Reihman, six from both Hannah Kamp and Kendra Morgan and five from Ava Smarch. Desiree Nales finished with four and Isabella Nimeh finished the scoring with two points in the game.

The Lady Pirates (3-13, 0-12) focused on controlling Nales, who leads the team in scoring with 7.9 points per game, but others found ways to contribute. Kamp, one of just three senior players on the team, has pushed her scoring average up to 6.6 points per game, good enough for second on the team.

Young players are continuing to develop with Reihman, a junior, averaging 5.9 per game and freshman Morgan averaging 5.8 points per outing.

Over the weekend, the team traveled to Panther Valley (10-7, 6-6 Schuylkill) where it fell 66-35. Angela Bitar and Morgan both scored seven points, while Nales, Kamp and Reihman finished with six. The seven points for Bitar are a season high for the senior.

The Lady Falcons have games on back-to-back nights going into the weekend when they host Catasauqua (5-10, 2-9) Thursday night and Kutztown (5-11, 2-5 Berks) on Friday. They are then off until next Wednesday when they host Northwestern Lehigh (15-1, 10-1).
