GIRLS BASKETBALL: North Penn holds off Pocono Mountain West

Pocono Mountain West had reached the PIAA Class AAAA Tournament in large part due to its three-point shooting.

But it was North Penn’s three-point shooting that tilted control to the Maidens Friday night and put them in the lead for good against the Panthers.

Jenn Halcovage, Vicky Tumasz and Erin Maher all hit from outside as part of a 17-1 first-half run for North Penn, and the Maidens’ defense forced 20 turnovers in holding off Pocono Mountain West, 44-38, in a first-round state playoff game at Pleasant Valley High School.

North Penn now advances to face Wilson in the second round on Tuesday.
