NP girls clinch at least tie for first

North Pocono held Honesdale to five field goals for the first three quarters Friday night as the host Lady Trojans clinched no worse than a tie for the Lackawanna League Division 2 girls basketball title with a 43-27 victory.

Abby Lenchitsky led the way for the Lady Trojans with 12 points. She was 6-for-7 from the line.

North Pocono led 11-2 after one quarter, 24-8 at halftime and 33-13 through three quarters.

Honesdale cut into the final margin with four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Trojans improved to 10-2 in the league and 12-9 overall by winning their fourth straight and eighth in their last nine games.

North Pocono has a one-game lead over Wallenpaupack, which it hosts Monday night at 6:45 in the regular-season finale.

A North Pocono win would give the Lady Trojans the division title. If Wallenpaupack (9-3, 15-6) wins, the teams finish tied and will need a playoff to championship.
