GIRLS BASKETBALL: Souderton battles past Abington

For Montgomery Media / MARK C. PSORAS Souderton's Allison Gallagher puts up a shot during Friday's District One Class AAAA elimination game against Abington.
The Souderton Area girls basketball team hosted Abington Friday night in the playback portion of the District One Class AAAA tournament. And by this stage of the season, teams typically know what you are all about. In order for the Indians get one game closer to a PIAA appearance, they knew the scoring of the Galloping Ghosts’ sensational sophomore Deja Rawls had to be contained.

“I think everybody knows the game plan against Abington,” Indians coach Lynn Carroll said. “We tried to limit Rawls as much as possible.”

Rawls never gave up on her quick first step and fancy spins to the hoop, but the Indians were equipped with fast guards and, motivated to keep their season alive, used a strong defensive effort to earn a 43-34 win.
