PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Off on the right foot

Goshen girls top Lakeland in season opener


“Deja did a nice job. She made a lot of things happen,” Krebs said.

Due in part to the injuries Goshen had two freshmen play considerable minutes. Ashton Ellis started a guard and Aylissa Trosper came off the bench. Ellis finished with two points, three rebounds, an assist and three steals and Trosper nine points, three rebounds and an assist.

Ashton Ellis is the coach’s daughter.

“She knows how to play the game the right way,” Krebs said. “What she needs to do is relax and let them game come to her. It’s a big step from 8th grade to the varsity. She needs to understand the things she can do well and if that is handling the ball and getting us into our offense then that is what she needs to do. Tonight was a first step for her.

“Aylissa showed she can give us a spark off the bench. She has worked hard on her defense and has come a long way since last year.

“I was pleased with the way the freshmen played. Looking back at it I’m not sure we realized how much we depended on Aimee in situations like this.”

Junior Leslie Vanlandingham netted four points for Goshen, Troyer three and senior Jessica DeStefano two.

Junior Amy Thompson netted nine points and Richardson six to lead the Lakers.

“Tonight was a first step. Our goal is to be playing our best basketball by February,” Krebs said. “The injuries have left some kids playing riles that they are not used to. We are going to have to be a little patient with some of them.”

Goshen was a 34-22 JV winner.
