UNION TOWNSHIP | It wasn’t necessarily a pretty win, but victories don’t necessarily need to be pretty.tournament time.

Times No. 5 Bishop Noll battled through foul trouble to a 45-26 Greater South Shore Conference tournament win against host Wheeler.

Naomi House and Elena Sobilo each scored 10 points to lead the Warriors (14-2).

“It was a sloppy game for us,” Noll coach Vanita Gary said. “We got in foul trouble early … we had four fouls in the first three minutes of the first quarter. It was a real physical game. I had to try to get the girls to slow down.”

Those early fouls meant Noll needed big minutes from its bench.

“We had to make some early substitutions,” Gary said. “We had to rely on some of our bench players. Monica Martin stepped in when we needed her to when our starting post players got into foul trouble.”

Scoreless without a single shot attempt, Martin still changed the flow of the game with a big defensive effort. The Warriors led 21-10 at halftime and the advantage reached 20 points by the end of the third quarter.

Allie Stevenson led Wheeler (8-9) with 10 points and was the only Bearcat to score in double figures.

Though happy with the end result, Gary still hopes to see a cleaner performance from her team for both the rest of the tournament and season.

“It was a messy game for us,” Gary said. “It definitely shows everyone has more work to do. We were talking about that during the game, ‘What are we going to take away from tonight?’

“We still have more work to do until we can consistently execute well. We still have a long road ahead of us.”
