Bruins sweep Warriors in county doubleheader

LIZTON — In front of a jam-packed homecoming crowd, the Tri-West Bruins completed the doubleheader sweep of rival Danville in girls’ and boys’ basketball.


If last night’s Tri-West and Danville girls’ basketball game was a motion picture, Lauren DeSutter gave an Oscar-winning performance.

The senior guard’s 37 points, seven steals and four assists led the Bruins (14-5) to an 80-46 victory over Danville (9-10) and made school history.

DeSutter tied a school record for most points scored in game and broke school records with seven 3-pointers made and she took ownership of the most points scored in a single season. DeSutter needed five points to break the record and shattered it.

“Honestly it means a lot to me,” DeSutter said. “It’s my last home game ever to play at Tri-West and for me to be able to beat records here tonight, it just made my night,”

To make the night that much sweeter, she also won basketball homecoming queen.

“It just added on,” DeSutter said beaming. “It was great, too.”

From the opening tip, Tri-West was ready to play.

The Bruins exploded for a season-best 45 points in the first half and scored one point less than their season-high of 81 points. Tri-West shot 54 percent from the field and 62 percent from beyond the arc.

“I just think it was our best game from start to finish,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “I thought everybody contributed with kids coming off the bench that got big minutes. Everybody was helping us win.”

Bruins sophomore Karen Jones dropped in 16 points and eight rebounds. Maleha Motter led Danville with 12 points and six rebounds.

The Warriors had trouble keeping up with the Bruins offensively as they shot 31 percent for the game and had 25 turnovers.

“To start with, there isn’t any reason why a team should come out flat and we were just totally flat tonight,” Danville coach Terry Hammons said. “It’s a conference game, it’s a good rival, it’s a matter of being able to step up and show people that you can compete and we didn’t do that tonight.”
