William Tennent Comments

Hot shooting early by CB East, combined with a poor job of rebounding the ball proved to be the difference tonight in the Panthers 55-33 loss. The Patriots came out strong knocking down outside shots and capitalized on second chance opportunities to take the lead at halftime 33-11. The Panthers, however, showed no quit as they made an 11-3 run to pull within 14 with a minute and 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter. A few unforced turnovers and missed rebounds late in the quarter snapped their run, as the Patriots closed out the quarter with 6 quick points to extend their lead to 42-22. The Panthers continued to fight, but it was just too much to overcome. Kyla Gibson lead the way with 8 points, Emma Stanfield had 7, Kelly Scipione, Brianna Broccardi, and Jess Rutkowsky each had 6 points respectively. "The last three games have been tough for us, said Coach Whitney." "Defense has been our identity all season long, and what has helped us stay competitive." "I felt like the last couple of game we kind of got away from that, and haven't had the best effort." "Tonight I was really pleased with how hard we played and thought that we were much more active defensively in the second half, forcing East into tougher contested shots."
