CANTON — Canton-Galva’s girls had no problem with Trinity Catholic on Friday.

The Eagles ramped up the defensive pressure and received good offensive games from Kelli Nightingale and Cassidy Enns in a 46-27 rout.

Nightingale was consistent with 10 points in the first half and eight in the second half for a team-high 18. Enns, who is being heavily recruited, chipped in with 15.

C-G gave up just 10 points in the first half.

One bad quarter turned the tide for the C-G boys as they came up short in a 53-41 setback.

The Celtics erupted for 22 points in the second quarter after C-G had shot out to a 12-6 lead.

Hunter Pearson led C-G with nine points, one more than Ethan Dailey. Travis Unruh had seven rebounds.

“We played really well tonight in spurts,” C-G coach Shane Duncan said. “Defensively in the first half, we were very strong until Unruh and Pearson went to the bench with foul trouble in the second. We gave up a 3 at the halftime buzzer that really changed the momentum. We played very physical tonight against a strong and athletic Trinity team. Just not enough scoring to get the job done.”
