GRATERFORD — The Methacton girls did not get off to a particularly
good start in their first game of the week that will decide whether or
not they make it to the Pioneer Athletic Conference basketball playoffs.
It took five minutes for them to get to five points Tuesday night at
Perkiomen Valley and the offense never did run too smoothly in the first
But the Warriors — and Kelsey Watson in particular — picked
it up after the intermission and doubled their eight-point halftime
lead in less than four minutes on the way to a 50-33 Liberty Division
Watson poured in 11 points in the third quarter and finished
with a game-high 21. That came after Jenna Carroll had provided the bulk
of the scoring for Methacton (8-2, 16-3) in the first half with 15 of
her 19 points for the night.
Perkiomen Valley (5-6, 11-8) —
playing without leading scorer Mikki Guiton and with second-high scorer
Katie Armstrong on the bench for a good part of the first half with
three fouls — struggled on offense throughout the contest and was led by
Lauren Leonard’s nine points.
