MILL CREEK — Reagan Sharp hit four 3-pointers and poured in 27 points Dec. 6 to lead Trinity Christian to a 65-43 girls’ basketball victory over Tygarts Valley.

Teammate Emily Saurborn knocked down 17 points for the Warriors (2-0), who pulled out to a 35-21 halftime lead on the way to victory in a tune-up for a big early season game.

“We’re scoring much better than last season,” Trinity coach Mike Baldy said, “but we’ve got to start playing better defense. We have Notre Dame coming up Saturday, that’s a big battle right there. Defense has to be better cause Notre Dame’s got some players.”

The Warriors host the Irish at 2 p.m.

Sharp was coming off a 37-point game in the Warriors’ opener.

“She can shoot this year,” Baldy said. “She worked on it all summer. It makes a big difference when she can step out and hit 3-pointers.”

Abby Lanham led the Bulldogs with 10 points.

Philip Barbour 60, Clay-Battelle 44: GRAFTON — Haley Barr had a game-high 23 points and Abbey Ammons added 17, but they couldn’t overcome more balanced scoring from the Colts, in the first game of the Sam Bord Tournament.

Philip Barbour surged to a 29-11 halftime lead and coasted from there, leaving Clay-Battelle to play in the consolation game, at 4 p.m. Friday, against the loser of today’s game between Grafton and Liberty.

Between them, Barr and Ammons had all of C-B’s nine 3-point baskets.

Kasey Neville topped the Colts with 19 points.
