Defense lifts Elk County to victory over Kane

January 24, 2012

In front of a big crowd in the Wolves Den the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders showed why they will be a team to contend with in the playoffs as they won 38-27 over Kane.
Their pressure defense led to several turnovers and extra possessions on the offense.
They also were able to take the crowd out of the game with the scrappy defense and outhustled Kane. They were quicker to the ball and they anticipated the passes very well.
For a team with not a lot of size they rebound the ball very well as a team. They more than held their own with the taller Lady Wolves on the boards.

The "revised" proposed budget calls for a 1.5-mill increase in the property tax rate in Kane.

Big first quarter leads Brockway to win over Kane

January 21, 2012

The Brockway Rovers came out firing in the first quarter and connected on three 3-pointers that helped them take a commanding 21-6 lead. That margin was good enough to keep the scrappy Wolves at bay the rest of the night in a 64-49 road victory.
The tight defense by the Rovers led to several early steals which led to baskets at the other end. Once the Wolves were able to get the ball in bounds they were able to penetrate and make some baskets.
