January 20, 2013
Weirton Daily Times

WEIRTON - The Weir High girls basketball team, sans leading scorer Alyssa Shingle, who is on the mend from a sprained ankle, used a huge fourth quarter to earn its third straight win, 57-41 over Buckeye Local Saturday afternoon at the Carl Hamill Fieldhouse.

The Red Riders employed stingy defense in the final eight minutes, allowing the visiting Panthers only two field goals. The hosts only gave up five field goals in the second half.

Weir High evened its mark at 7-7, hitting the .500 mark for the first time this year.

Taylor Long and Lindsey Robinson combined for 14 points in Shingle's absence.

Sophomore Raegan Stead paced the winners with a game-high 23 points, 10 in the telling fourth quarter, when Weir outscored the Panthers, 18-6. She scored seven straight points in the second period. Shelva Burns added 10.

Lauren Swiger topped Buckeye Local with 13 points. Amy Balk added nine points, all in the second half, and Kayla Fillipovich eight.

The Red Riders visit Magnolia Tuesday. Buckeye Local hosts St. Clairsville Thursday.
