Redd scores 1,000th, but Penn Wood falls again

Dahnye Redd reached a special milestone Thursday night as her team suffered another heartbreaking loss.

The All-Delco senior forward scored her 1,000th career point as the Pattriots fell to host Cheltenham, 60-57. Redd, who entered the game two points shy of the achievement, finished with a game-high 29 points for the Pats (1-5).

Redd is the third Penn Wood girls basketball player to eclipse the 1,000-point plateau. All-Delco and Temple alumna Dominique Williams was the first to do it in 2002.

Carle Andrews chipped in 12 points in the loss.
