Prep girls hoops: Charlotte holds off Laingsburg to win by 8 points

CHARLOTTE

Although it had to hang on during a sudden fourth-quarter shooting drought, Charlotte improved to 2-0 with a 60-52 non-league girls basketball win over Laingsburg on Thursday.

Madison Dingman led all scorers with 22 points for the Wolfpack (1-1), which trailed by 13 points early in the fourth but made a game of it late.

Ayren Parrish led the Orioles with 18 points, including two free throws with 5.6 seconds left that finally finished off the comeback attempt.

“I was pleased with the hard work and the effort,” Charlotte coach Lisa Hoyt said. “When somebody stepped on the floor and there was a role that needed to be filled, the girls stepped into those roles.”

Laingsburg kept the game close in the first half and into the second in the face of the Orioles’ aggressive man-to-man defense. The Wolfpack were within one possession three minutes into the third quarter before Charlotte opened up some breathing room. Parrish had a steal and layup that capped off an 11-2 run that gave the Orioles a 56-43 lead with 7:37 remaining.

Laingsburg then turned up the defensive pressure themselves, holding Charlotte without a point for over six minutes from there. Laingsburg freshman Samantha Mentus split a pair of free throws that made the score 56-50 with 3:46 on the clock.

But that would be as close as the Wolfpack would get, as they missed their last three free throws – including the front end of a 1-and-1 – in the final 1:22 of the game.

Hannah Smith scored 15 points and Alyssa Brumbaugh added 14 for the Orioles.

Despite the loss, Laingsburg coach Doug Hurst said that the game will prepare his team well for their league schedule.

“I thought we played really well,” Hurst said. “The CMAC is a strong league, and P-W and St. Pats (Pewamo-Westphalia and Portland St. Patrick) are obviously very good, but it’s going to be hard to find anybody better than who we just played in the CMAC.”
