VIDEO: Matthews paces Padua to DSC bracket championship

Emma Matthews scored a game-high 12 points as her Padua squad defeated Tatnall 36-26 to win the New Castle Insurance Cup Championship at the Diamond State Classic Friday afternoon.

The Pandas led throughout most of the contest, racing out to an early 8-3 lead after one quarter and a 19-14 advantage at intermission.

Both teams struggled from the floor against hounding defense, but ultimately the Pandas were able to get just enough offense going from Matthews and Rachel Liszkiewicz, who scored 7 points, to keep the Hornets in check.

Erin Dodds hit seven free throws as part of an 11 point game for Tatnall.
