LADY BULLDOGS ADVANCE TO SWEET 16

Tori Talanca WILKES BARRE – The Berwick Area Lady Bulldogs advanced to the state “Sweet 16” with a thrilling 37-36 win over Jersey Shore here Friday evening.  Tori Talanca’s shot at the buzzer capped a furious rally which saw Berwick overcome a four-point deficit in the last 10 seconds to advance in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) Class AAAA Tournament.

Reese Mensinger hit a three pointer with about 10 seconds to play and following a turnover, Berwick set up a play with less than a second left in the game.  Talanca’s buzzer-beater sent the Lady Bulldogs into a second round game against District 1 champion Lower Moreland at Hamburg High School tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m., weather permitting.

With the win, Berwick’s record is now 17-9. The loss ends the season of the Jersey Shore Lady Bulldogs, who were the third place team from District 4.
