Lady Eagles Hold Off Late Charge by Northwest to Earn Tenth Win

The first time since the 2013-2014 season, the Seneca Valley Girls Basketball team has won 10 games. The Lady Eagles earned their tenth win against cross-town rivals as they held off a later charge by the Jaguars of Northwest on Friday, Feb. 8 to get a 45-43 victory on the road.

Seneca Valley held an 11 point, 39-28 lead at the end of the third quarter, but the Lady Jags roared back to score 15 in the fourth quarter to pressure the young Seneca team who managed to score six points in the fourth to hold off the Jags.

“We always seem to find a way to make it harder than it needs to be,” said first-year Seneca Valley Head Coach Ali Hashemzadeh. We were up 11 going into the fourth and ran into foul trouble, and our depth is always a concern. I love the heart of these girls; they never give up. They find a way to pull it out. We are on the upwards swing here heading into the playoffs.”
