January 31, 2013

Johnsonburg junior Chelsea Benson looks for an open player in the first quarter Wednesday night against visiting DuBois Central Catholic. Benson paced the Ramettes with 10 points, all in the first half.

JOHNSONBURG – The Johnsonburg Ramettes (13-5) were on the wrong end of a 9-0 start Wednesday night before righting the ship in time for a come-from-behind 33-28 win against visiting DuBois Central Catholic (8-10).
The Ramettes used a 10-2 run late in the second quarter to take a 20-17 lead to the locker room. Late game theatrics, however, nearly cost Johnsonburg the game.
Junior Kathryn Polaski started of the third quarter with a 3-pointer in what was otherwise a frustrating eight minutes for both teams shooting from the field. The next basket was scored by Johnsonburg senior Brittany Watts, whose short jumper with 4:46 on the clock gave the home team a 25-17 lead. DCC would regroup with a 3-pointer from Aundrea Snyder, whose 11 points led all scorers, to cut the lead to 25-20. Johnsonburg junior Kassa Kocjancic later came up with a steal and fed the ball to senior Rhianon Fowler for the easy layup and a 27-20 lead going into the fourth quarter.
Shooting woes continued for both teams in the fourth quarter as the Lady Cardinals scratched their way back into the game. Kylee Schaffer hit a free throw roughly a minute into the final stanza to cut the lead to just six points. Despite leading all scorers, Snyder also shined on defense as well as she came up with a timely steal and strolled in for an uncontested layup with 4:33 to play, trimming the lead to 27-23.
