Despite a team-high 15 points from junior Sydney Shaw, the high-powered Bellwood offense was too much for the Lady Eagles as they fell to Bellwood 78-45 Saturday afternoon in the annual season-opening pink game.

The 2017 Lady Blue Devils feature a pair of 6’1 players, and both were a major force in this contest.

Sophomore Alli Campbell led with a game-high 29 points and nine rebounds. Sophomore Altoona transfer Sakeria Haralson added 17 points and six rebounds, despite playing limited minutes due to foul trouble.

“They’re a very solid team. They’ve got a lot of weapons,”  said Tyrone head coach Luke Rhoades., “We’ve got to find some things. We actually executed our offense well at times. When we watch this tape, we’ll see a lot of little things we need to improve on, but also some things we did OK.”

I think we played tough overall, but we need to lower the amount of turnovers and hit our shots from the free throw line”

— Senior Emily Lehman

For the Lady Eagles, in addition to Shaw’s 15 points, senior Emily Lehman was a force low in the paint scoring and rebounding. Lehman finished with 12 points and a team-high nine rebounds.  All of Lehman’s points came from the paint before fouling out with 2:30 left in the game.

“I think we played tough overall, but we need to lower the number of turnovers and hit our shots from the free throw line,” said Lehman.

Bellwood came out of the gate red hot, starting the game on an 18-5 run. Tyrone called a timeout to slow the bleeding, but the damage was done. The first quarter came to an end with Bellwood on top 26-9.

Bellwood kept the pedal down in the second quarter putting up 25 more points and holding the usually capable Eagle offense to only 9 points. The first half ended with the Lady Eagles trailing 51-18.

In the third quarter, Tyrone kept even with Bellwood matching their 17 points but was unable to gain any momentum. The third quarter ended with Bellwood leading 68-35.

The fourth quarter went similar to the third, with both teams putting up a 10 spot for the quarter. 

With the loss, the Lady Eagles fall to 0-1 on the season. They go on the road to take on the Philipsburg Mounties on Wednesday and then return home on Friday to take on the Central Dragons.
