Led by senior Sydney Shaw’s 23 points and freshman Stephanie Ramsey’s 13 points, the Tyrone Lady Eagles gave the defending state champion Bellwood Lady Blue Devils all they could handle on Saturday, but fell short in a close 67-57 loss.

In addition to the excellent shooting by the senior and freshman pair, the Lady Eagles also turned in an outstanding defensive effort that forced 16 Bellwood turnovers in the near-upset.  

“I feel like we played with very solid effort, we played with the intensity we need, we definitely have room to grow, if we can build of that intensity level we can continue to get better as the year goes on,” said Tyrone head coach Luke Rhoades.

Bellwood took control of the game early as they grabbed a 13-7 lead.  But led by Sydney Shaw, Tyrone went on a 12-1 run, taking a 19-14 first quarter lead after a last second three from Shaw.

“I feel like we played with our hearts out and if we would have corrected a few mistakes we would have won, and hopefully we see them again in the Kiwanis tournament,””

— Senior Brook Welsh

 

After the sluggish start the Blue Devils looked like they might pull ahead in the second quarter, but the Lady Eagles refused to give up as they continued to hit timely shots, never letting Bellwood claim a big lead.

The first half came to a close with Bellwood holding a one point 26-25 lead over the Lady Eagles.

Early in the third quarter Bellwood again looked to pull away, taking a 43-32 lead, but timely threes by Tyrone junior Kelsey Johnson and  Jaida Parker cut Bellwood’s lead to 8. The third quarter came to an end with Bellwood leading 48-40. Parker finished the game 10 points and Johnson with 4.

Just like in the third quarter, Bellwood built a commanding lead, going up 57-44 early in the fourth. But the Lady Eagles refused to go away once again as three by Sydney and Shannon Shaw cut Bellwood’s lead to 6 with just over a minute remaining. Sophomore Shannon Shaw finished the night with 5 points.

“I feel like we played with our hearts out and if we would have corrected a few mistakes we would have won, and hopefully we see them again in the Kiwanis tournament,” said Tyrone senior Brook Welsh.

Unfortunately, shortly after cutting the Blue Devils lead to six Sydney Shaw fouled out on a controversial call. The Blue Devils then sank their free throws to ice the game, defeating Tyrone 67-57.

Bellwood’s Alli Cambell led all scorers with 29.  The next highest scoring Bellwood player was  Emily Leidig with 14.

The loss dropped the Lady Eagles to 0-1. They look to bounce back and win their opening game in Mountain League play Tuesday as they travel to Bellefonte for a 7:30 pm tip-off.
