Delfino, Haefeles help Misericordia score 107

Misericordia University placed six players in double figures, including three who are JB Hoops alums, while rolling over host Gwynedd Mercy, 107-86, in women’s basketball Saturday.

Gianna Delfino had a double-double and Misericordia also got a Haefele double, with sisters Erica and Morgan joining in the offensive onslaught.

Delfino, a 5-foot-11 freshman guard/forward from Dunmore, had 20 points and 12 rebounds in her second college game while helping Misericordia win for the second time in less than 24 hours.

Erica Haefele, a junior, had 16 points and Morgan Haefele, a freshman, added 10.

Delfino has 26 points and 22 rebounds in her first two games. She also had seven assists Saturday while shooting 7-for-13 from the floor and making all five of her free throws as well as her only 3-point attempt. Her double-double was one of three for the Cougars, who were led by Tessa Zamoyi with 24 points and 19 rebounds.

The Haefeles, both Mid Valley graduates, led Misericordia’s backcourt production.

Erica Haefele was third on the team with 16 points and Morgan Haefele came off the bench to add 10, including leading the game’s key run.

Morgan Haefele scored five points in the final minute of the first half as part of an 11-3 run that erased the last Gwynedd Mercy lead and put Misericordia.

The Cougars then scored 31 points in the third quarter and 30 more in the fourth.

Erica Haefele had half of the team’s 3-pointers, going 3-for-6 from long distance. She also was 5-for-6 from the line along with grabbing six rebounds and dishing out two assists.

Morgan Haefele made half her shots, finishing 4-for-8 from the floor, 1-for-2 from 3-point range and 1-for-2 from the line. She also had five rebounds and four assists.
