Pen­nridge runs past Quak­er­town for win

News-Herald (Perkasie, PA) - - OPINION - By Tim Hindin

Pen­nridge has en­dured its share of tough losses this sea­son how­ever Tues­day night they got off the schneid with a 77-47 win over vis­it­ing Quak­er­town. The Rams led the game just about start to fin­ish and were able to ex­e­cute ef­fi­ciently on of­fense and de­fense.

“[This was az much needed win tonight,” said Pen­nridge coach Lind­sey Ten­nett. “I told them they needed to come out ag­gres­sive and they did.”

Pen­nridge had a no­tice­able ad­van­tage in re­bounds, which al­lowed them to get out and run on the fast break. The Rams also had success in their half court sets with shots coming from all over the court.

“The past cou­ple games we have been strug­gling with re­bound­ing,” Ten­nett said. “To­day we boxed out and got re­bounds. We’re a short quick team. We need to run and get tran­si­tion points.”

Pen­nridge had a balanced scor­ing at­tack through out the game with 10 play­ers reg­is­ter­ing points and four play­ers scor­ing at least eight points. De­van Rim­mer lead all Rams with 14 points.

“Rim­mer, we can al­ways rely on her,” Ten­nett said. “She’s some­one that I know ev­ery game she’ll be a leader and come out like that.

With both teams spend­ing a lot of time in the bonus, the game fea­tured plenty of trips to the free throw line. Pen­nridge hit 19 of 23 (82 per­cent) foul shots.

“We made free throws,” Ten­nett said. “Last time we played them we missed 25 free throws. Tonight we were prob­a­bly 80 per­cent which al­ways helps.”
