Orioles edge Mavericks

AVON — At 1-4 and heading into a very difficult stretch of its schedule without a home game in sight, the Avon Orioles girls’ basketball team desperately needed a win.

Playing against the visiting McCutcheon Mavericks Saturday afternoon, the Orioles took a 51-49 victory.

“We needed that, as we haven’t had the chance to play with a lead that much ... it’s good to win a tight game,” Avon coach David Cupp said. “We tried to do some things to give (McCutcheon) the basketball. We took a couple of bad shots at the end and missed some free throws. I couldn’t be more happy for the kids. They did such a great job of just competing, especially when things weren’t go so well for us offensively.”

Freshman Shelle Daniels fulfilled Cupp’s premonition the day before by scoring 20 points to lead the Orioles while pulling down eight rebounds. McCutcheon had no answer for Daniels’ post play when she received the ball down low.

“I told my assistant I thought (Daniels) would have 20 to 25 today,” Cupp said with a smile. “She’s really done a good job for us just learning. She’s taken a lot of my coaching and encouragement to get her to play hard. I was happy and really tickled for her today. She was a presence and they couldn’t guard her.”

Also helping spearhead the Orioles’ effort were senior Megan Price and sophomore Brooke Peters. Cupp said Price played through a hip injury and Peters continues to play at a high level.

“I’m real proud of Megan, she’s been injured and played a lot of minutes for us and was a real leader out there today,” he said. “After missing everything in the first three quarters, Brooke stepped up and hit a huge three-pointer there at the end for us. That’s toughness.”
