Two long scoring runs keyed CSAT to a 43-36 win over host Roy-Hart in a non league girls basketball game this evening.

CSAT jumped out to a 14-4 lead at the outset including 6 by Amiyan Rollerson.

However, Roy-Hart answered back with a big 17-0 run, which first pulled the Lady Rams to within one at the half (14-13) and then into a 21-14 lead midway through the third quarter.

Ava Owens scored 15 to spearhead that big rally. She tallied 9 in the second quarter on two rebound baskets, a three and a jumper and then tallied the first 6 of the second half on three more jumpers.

CSAT though countered with what proved to be a decisive 23-6 run to regain the lead for good by 10 at 37-27 with less than three minutes to go. Back-to-back threes by Monika Allen and Rollerson, which highlighted the rally, put the Lady Eagles back on top to stay at 30-25.

Roy-Hart did rally back to within four, 37-33, with 1:10 to go after back-to-back threes by Owens, but could get no closer.

Owens finished with a game high 22 as Kaitlin Mettler added 6, Juliana Buscarino 4 and Claire Halstead and Alexis Cacciatore 2 each for the Lady Rams.

Allen had 13, Rollerson 9 and Maryya Williams 8 to pace CSAT.
