BETHLEHEM TWP. — Brittany Moore’s senior girls basketball season didn’t exactly begin the way she envisioned it -- with a high ankle sprain.
But the Spring-Ford guard certainly appears to be finishing her final campaign with a flourish.
Tuesday night at Freedom High, Moore was at the forefront as the Rams gutted out a 58-44 victory over a dead-game Wallenpaupack squad in a PIAA-AAAA Tournament second-round game.
Senior forward Courtney Hinnant and junior guard Sammy Stipa scored 10 points each for the Pioneer Athletic Conference and District 1-AAAA champion Rams (29-2), who won their 21st straight game and advanced to Friday’s state quarterfinal against District 3 No. 4 seed Dover (27-3), a 42-38 winner over Nazareth.
