The Mount Union girls’ basketball team ran into a very strong Bellwood-Antis squad in an Inter-County Conference North rematch Wednesday night at Mount Union. The Blue Devils and the Trojans played the first part of the opening quarter with a four-point spread. The Blue Devils then hit six of their nine treys in the first quarter to open a 27-point lead and just marched away to an 86-19 win.

The Trojans slip to 5-13 on the season and they are 3-9 in the ICC North. The Blue Devils sit on top of the ICC North and are 17-3 on the season and 12-1 in the division. The Trojans lost the first meeting at Bellwood 95-27 back on Jan. 24.

“They are a very solid basketball team and they execute their offense very well,” stated Trojan head coach Alix Sellers. “They have a strong defense and gave us problems with the press. Our goal was to come out and play better than the last meeting and I think we played with more energy tonight.”

In the early going of the first quarter, Karrigan Woodward hit for five points and Kyra Hand added a trey to keep it a four-point game. Woodward hit for seven on the night to lead the Trojans in scoring. The Blue Devils then sank six treys in a row and senior Riley D’Angelo added another to build a 27-point lead. D’Angelo hit for 12-points in the quarter. Junior Alli Campbell knocked down 14 points, including four treys.

The Blue Devils continued to press in the second quarter, holding the Trojans to just two-points in the frame. They hit for 14 to take a 51-12 margin into the break.

Mount Union came out in the third quarter and continued to have problems with the press, scoring just three points. The Blue Devils added 20-points to invoke the mercy clock. D’Angelo hit a trey to end her night with 22 points. Campbell hit for six to end her night with a team-high 29 and the Blue Devils were up by 56-point.

Both teams went to the bench in the fourth quarter.

Campbell came in needing 84-points to hit 2000 and D’Angelo needed 45-points to reach the 1000 -point plateau.

The Trojans will host Glendale tonight and celebrate Senior Night in an ICC North contest at 6 p.m.
