Reading girls use late push to down Governor Mifflin

Reading girls outlast Governor Mifflin

READING, Pa. - Last season, the Reading girls put together a great run, and ended up winning a Berks I Championship.  But they've stumbled a bit so far this year.  In fact, they already had as many division losses this year as they did all of last season as they entered Thursday evening's showdown with a tough Governor Mifflin team.

Lady Mustangs' leading scorer Emily Gingrich scored the game's first basket, then left the game shortly thereafter with an ankle injury and would not return. That did not stop Mifflin from holding three-point halftime lead.

But in the second half, Reading took the upper hand, outscoring Mifflin 34-26. Jailyn Stern poured in a game-high 18 points for the Red Knights. Isis Thorpe added 15 as Reading used a late 7-2 run and clutch free throws to pull away late.

Melissa Martin led the lady Mustangs with 12 points. Megan McKay was also in double figures with 11.

Reading improves to 4-1, while Governor Mifflin drops to 4-3.
