Precious Martin scored eight of her 10 points in the second half and Amanda Stouffer worked inside to hit the game-winning basket in the final minute as Central Dauphin defeated Abington Heights girls basketball team, 29-27, Tuesday in Hazleton.

Central Dauphin limited Abington Heights to seven points or less in each of the first three quarters. The Lady Rams held on despite shooting just 6-for-14 from the line in the fourth quarter and 7-for-19 for the game.

The Lady Comets went 8-for-12 at the line, but did not manage enough other offense.

Katherine Rosencrance had 10 points, including all six that Abington Heights scored in the third quarter. Catie Nealon came off the bench to hit a 3-pointer that helped the Lady Comets rally to lead briefly in the fourth quarter.
