Shingle surpasses 1,000 in win

High school roundup

February 8, 2014
Weirton Daily Times

WEIRTON - Weir girls basketball coach Bill Smith always tells his team that playing good defense can make the difference on a night when things aren't going great offensively.

That's why he wasn't surprised to see his Lady Red Riders pull out a 39-33 victory of East Liverpool at Carl Hamill Fieldhouse on a night when points were at a premium.

The Lady Riders (6-12) shot just 27-percent from the field, but used a pair of scoring bursts to distance themselves from the Lady Potters before holding on for the six-point win.

"I tell these girls all the time to play defense," Smith said, "Especially on nights when we're not shooting well and offense is hard to come by. That's what they did tonight and that's why we won."

The Lady Riders trailed 11-9 late in the first quarter before going on a 10-0 run that went to the midway point of the second to take a 21-11 lead.

Having squandered most of a 10-point cushion late the first half to stumble to a 21-17 lead at the break, Weir opened the third quarter on another run, this time 12-0, to take control.

It was during that run that Weir senior Alyssa Shingle stepped to the line and drained a free throw with about five minutes left the period for her eighth marker of the game and the 1,000th point of her career. The crowd erupted as Shingle broke the barrier and helped expand her team's lead.

"Thousand point scorers always have the same things in common," Smith said. "They're hard workers, they great kids from great families and they're not afraid. They want the ball with the game on the line and that's what Alyssa showed tonight, and through her career."

Shingle finished the game with 12 points to lead the Lady Riders to their Senior Night victory and also gathered in nine rebounds and eight steals while dishing out five assists. Fellow senior Aslynn Drizake chipped in 10 points and six boards, junior Raegan Stead tallied nine points and senior Maddie Dalrymple had seven rebounds and four blocks.
