SPARTA, NJ – In a turn around from Monday’s game Sparta High School girls basketball grabbed a win over Mount Olive, 39-24 on Wednesday, January 24. 

Talking about the differences between the Mount Olvie game and the Pope John game, Emily Dilger said they were able to get more penetration throughout the game.  Erin Scott added the girls “attacked the zone better than in the past and found the open players.”

When they left the floor at halftime the score was 20-14.  The girls held the lead from the start.  They were strong defensively getting the rebounds and forcing turnovers midcourt and on the throw in.

Scott led the scoring with 12 points.  She also pulled down three rebounds and had two steals.  Dilger racked up seven points with three free-throws.  She was also good under the net pulling down eight rebounds.

“We’ve played some pretty tough teams so far,” Scott said, “but it will pay off in states.”

“We’re going to keep working,” Dilger said.

Sparta girls now have a 7-5 record.  They will host West Morris Central on Tuesday, January 30 at 7 p.m.
