Greensburg Salem Girls Pound Derry 56-20 in Section Opener

Greensburg Salem's girls kicked off their conference schedule with authority, pounding Derry Area from the opening tipoff in a 56-20 win on Thursday, December 15, on the hardwood at Greensburg Salem High School. 

The game matched two of Westmoreland County's long-time coaches, Derry's Gene Brisbane and Greensburg Salem's Rick Klimchock, who together have combined for nearly 800 wins in their coaching careers. But on this night, it was Klimchock who added one to his total at 378, inching closer to Brisbane's current count of 405 victories.

Greensburg Salem came out firing on all cylinders, opening a 19-7 first quarter lead. The suffocating defense and 3-point shooting offense of the Golden Lions stifled the Lady Trojans, who managed only 4 points in the second quarter. The Lions drained five 3-pointers in the first half, and led 32-11 at the intermission. 

The situation didn't improve for Derry in the second half, as the Lady Lions opened a 46-15 third quarter advantage. Reserves got some playing time in the final frame, as the Lions claimed a 56-20 victory in their Class 4A Section 1 opener.  

Greensburg Salem's Kaitlyn Mankins led all scorers with 19 points, followed by Ashlan Price with 10. Mara Lewis had 6 points for Derry. 

Next up for Greensburg Salem (5-1, 1-0) is a non-conference home game with Connellsville on 12/22. Derry (4-3, 0-1) has a quick turnaround as they host Jeannette on 12/16.
