Harrison Central girls win first game

December 3, 2013

RAYLAND - The Harrison Central girls basketball team picked up its first win of the season by spoiling the home and season opener for Buckeye Local, 58-45, Monday.

Tom Figurski's debut as head coach for the Panthers started out well as the home team would stand toe-to-toe and with the Huskies for the first half.

The Huskies outscored the Panthers in the middle two periods, 28-15.

"We started to play defense together as a team," Harrison Central head coach Nick Yourkovich said. "We have not had all five players working together on defense this season, until tonight, when we finally put together a good quarter of defensive basketball."

The Huskies continued the romp, moving out and extending to a 20-point lead as Jesse Ledger drained her second three-point shot of the half midway through the fourth quarter,

Kara Dunfee paced the Huskies with 14 points and eight assists. Katie Ellzy dropped in 13 to round out double figures for the Huskies. D.J. Keesey added eight points while Ledger netted seven and led the Huskies in rebounds with five.

The Panthers' sophomore Lauren Swiger led all scoring with 18 points. Classmate Becky Zeroski joined her in double digits with 11 while junior Kierstyn Czuchran put in seven points.

"We have a nice group of players, we sent a lot of sophomores and juniors out there, and for the first game I thought we came out, worked hard and I am proud of the way we played," said Figurski of his Lady Panthers. "We came out in the second half and made some mental mistakes, but we are trying to build a solid program here and the only way to do that is get them out on the court for some varsity time."

The Huskies now 1-2 will head home to face off against 2-0 St. Clairsville Thursday evening while the Panthers will have a week to prepare for a tough Indian Creek squad.
