CRANBERRY TWP — Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic finally got the run it was looking for.

Trojanettes basketball coach Molly Rottmann only hopes consistent play will soon follow.

“We have a lot of work to do,” Rottmann said following Saturday’s 49-36 home win over Penn Hills in the Don Graham Classic.

The Trojanettes stayed unbeaten on the season, but led the stubborn Indians only 33-25 with 6:34 remaining.

CWNC’s Kari Karanikos drained a three-point goal that triggered a 12-0 run. Dani Short had a couple of lay-ups during the surge, Cassie Foster hit a trey and Tess Myers hit a jumper.

When the smoke cleared, the Trojanettes had a 45-25 advantage with 3:57 left and the issue was decided.

“They played a zone on us and we didn’t attack it enough until late,” Rottmann said.

CWNC never trailed in the game. Kylee Lewandowski was named her team’s Graham Classic MVP for the game, scoring 12 points, grabbing three steals and dishing out three assists.

Note: CWNC improved to 10-0 on the season with a 74-31 win over Highlands Monday night.
