RIMERSBURG, Pa. – With a free throw about 1:16 into Union’s 59-29 win over visiting Forest Area Monday, Union junior Dominika Logue became the 14th player in school history to score 1,000 career points.

“It means a lot,” Logue said. “It’s a nice accomplishment to have. It’s not really something I set as a goal. I have always wanted to just win some championships. But, it is nice to score a thousand points.”

Logue is just the fifth Golden Damsel player to reach 1,000 points before her senior season and the first in 15 years. Andrea Mortimer was the last when she reached the mark in a first-round PIAA playoff win over Duquesne March 5, 2005, as a junior.

“Not really, no,” Logue said when asked if she envisioned scoring her 1,000th point as a junior. “Like I said, I just want to win games, win some championships. I just try to play the best I can.”

Logue finished the night with 15 points, including 11 in the first quarter, and tied for game-high honors with teammate Kennedy Vogle, who scored 10 first-quarter tallies.

Between Logue and Vogle, Union scored 23 first-quarter points to lead by 10, 23-6, at the end of eight minutes.

The lead grew to 22, 38-16, by halftime, as the Golden Damsels won their third straight and for the ninth time in 12 outings to improve to 11-9 on the season after a 2-6 start.

“I think as the season went down the road a little further, we are back to playing our style that we are successful with, upping the tempo,” Logue said. “I think at the beginning of the season we were kind of just a little rusty not having the offseason.”

In addition to Logue and Vogle, Union also got 11 points from Keira Croyle.

Forest Area was led by 10 points from AMber Guzzi and nine from Jessica Wagner.

Union completes its regular season Thursday when it hosts Keystone.

Forest Area, which fell to 2-17, is back in action Wednesday at DuBois Central Catholic before traveling to Venango Catholic Friday to close out the year.
