GIRLS BASKETBALL: Methacton uses big second half to top Perkiomen Valley

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 half.
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 win.
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.
