Just two nonleague games on Wednesday’s L-L League girls’ basketball schedule. Here’s a roundup with some notables and links …
Elizabethtown 60, Donegal 41 — The Bears, looking for more momentum while chasing down Ephrata in the Section 2 race, put three players in double digits, and E-town (12-5) used a 23-10 third-quarter run to open up some breathing room and knock off the host Indians. Carly Sedun (15 points), Macy Seaman (season-high 14 points) and Ainsley Raybold (10 points) paced the Bears, who led 24-14 at the break. E-town is now 3-1 in its last four games, and sits alone in second place, two games behind Ephrata in Section 2. Kiera Baughman (18 points) and Victoria Burton (12 points) led Donegal (6-11), which was tripped up for the fourth game in a row.
Central York 44, Manheim Township 41 — The Blue Streaks led 27-21 at the half and 37-32 after three quarters, but the host Panthers closed the game on a 12-4 clip and snapped Township’s 3-game winning streak. Emily Prowell scored 15 points for Central York, while Katie Bushong bucketed 17 points for the Streaks (13-4), who dipped to No. 6 in the D3-6A power rankings. The Panthers (12-3) leapfrogged Township, up to No. 5 in the ratings.
