Road wins for Berwick, Crestwood

RaeAnna Andreas drained a 23-footer from the right wing with three seconds remaining Thursday night to lift Berwick to a 34-32 victory over host Dallas in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 game.

Dallas held the ball from 1:20 down to 20 seconds on the clock while trailing, 31-30.

Coach Vince Bucciarelli called timeout at that point to set up a play.

Molly Walsh came through, hitting an 18-footer from near the top of the key with 10.5 seconds left for a 32-31 Dallas lead.

Berwick then advanced the ball to the frontcourt in front of its bench where coach Bill Phillips called timeout with 7.4 seconds left.

The Bulldogs then in-bounded the ball and got it to Andreas for a clean look from deep on the right wing. She hit nothing but net for what proved to be the game-winning shot.

Dallas nearly topped that when it pushed the ball up floor to the 3-point arc where the game’s final shot spun out.

Andreas made three 3-pointers while scoring 11 points and Rachel Whitenight added 10 points for Berwick.

The Lady Bulldogs outscored the Lady Mountaineers, 6-2, in the second quarter for a 14-11 halftime lead.
