PASCO — DeSales’ Abby Crowley scored 15 points and led the Irish to a 46-40 win over Tri-Cities Prep in girls’ Southeast 2B basketball Saturday night.

“Crowley has been off to a slow offensive start this year,” Irish coach Tim Duncan said. “This was her biggest offensive scoring game of the season but she scored a lot for us last year.”

DeSales sharpshooters Emily Baumgart canned two 3-pointers and Ashlyn Lyons nailed a shot from downtown on her way to eight points. Baumgart finished with nine points.

The Irish (3-1, 2-0) were 9-26 from the free-throw line and Tri-Cities was 11-24.

“Don’t ask me why we should so poorly from the free-throw line,” Duncan said. “But good thing they (Tri-Cities) shot as poorly.”

Allison Wujek led DeSales with seven rebounds and Molli Lesko had seven assists.

“Five feet from the basket our shooting percentage was atrocious,” Duncan said. “It could have been a blowout had we made those up close shots.”

DeSales hosts Mac-Hi Monday at 6 p.m.
