MAYVILLE (Dec. 3) - Jesse Zenns scored 14 points in leading the Chautauqua Lake Lady Thunderbirds to a 48-32 victory over Pine Valley on Thursday in non-league girls high school basketball.

Zenns also pulled down seven rebounds. After losing Jenna Einink and Ashton Albanesius to graduation, Chautauqua Lake coach Eric Schuster is hoping Zenns will be one of the players to step up offensively.

"Jesse played with us last year," he said. "As playoffs came along last year, she saw quite a bit of time. She should be a double-double almost every night she comes on the floor."

Chautauqua Lake held a slim 14-9 lead after the first quarter, but went on a 13-4 run in the second quarter for a comfortable 27-13 halftime lead. The home team went on to outscore the Lady Panthers, 17-7, in the third quarter to essentially put the game out of reach.

Taylor Phelps contributed in the win with an all-around solid performance with eight points, eight rebounds, seven steals and five assists.

Jamie Wilcox led Pine Valley with 11 points, six rebounds and four steals.

"The first quarter was close, but I thought we did a nice job getting to the rim," Schuster noted. "Our guards attacked the rim. I was really pleased with that."

The Lady Thunderbirds get back to action on Friday at the Jamestown Tip-Off Tournament.
