Wilson WL girls cruise past Reading for 13th straight win

Wilson WL wins 13th straight with rout of Reading

SPRING TOWNSHIP, Pa. -  There are some great rivalries within the borders of Berks County. 

Reading and Wilson qualifies as one of them. 

For years, that rivalry was played out between great football teams. Then, great basketball teams. The rivalry then grew in other sports throughout the spring. 

Now, it's more of a rivalry in basketball than anything else and they play this week.  Thursday night it was the girls battling on the court at Wilson High School.

That battle quickly turned into a rout.

With Reading star Isis Thorpe on the bench for the first quarter due to team disciplinary reasons, Wilson jumped out to an early 20-8 lead and never looked back.The lady Bulldogs led by  16 at halftime, and put it on cruise control from there for the 72-45 victory.

The win marked Wilson's 13th straight and gave them a commanding two-game lead atop Berks I.

Wilson's Carley Brew led all scorers with 20 points. Two other lady Bulldogs were in double figures scoring-wise. Jessie Wallace had 13 while Mikayla Lea tallied 12.

Despite sitting for that first quarter, Thorpe still led the Red Knights in scoring with 12 points.

Wilson improves to 6-0 in the league, 13-1 overall. They will play at Muhlenberg next Friday. Reading falls to 4-2 within Berks I, 8-4 overall. They'll host Central Dauphin Saturday.
