Girls Basketball: Senior Day Heartbreaker For The Lady Spartans

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Sports, Today's Events  Comments Off on Girls Basketball: Senior Day Heartbreaker For The Lady Spartans
Feb 102016
 

IMG_0056Truth be told, we love our Lady Spartans Basketball Team. As in past years this team shows not only great athleticism, but good sportsmanship as well. They play hard and play well together, no one player ever trying to steal the spotlight because they all know “there is no ‘I’ in TEAM.”

But as good as this team is, the Daniel Hand Tigers are extremely aggressive and if you are in possession of the ball you have to shoot it, even if you aren’t in the perfect position to score, because one of the Tigers will steal it from you if you don’t.

The  game on Tuesday night — Amity’s Senior Night — had a lot of back and forth, tied up several times and Hand eventually defeated Amity with successful foul shots.

Amity ruled the first quarter outshooting Hand 18-12.

The Tigers came alive and dominated the second quarter with 18 points to Amity’s 6. 2nd Quarter score 30-24 – Hand.

Going into the second half, Amity fought hard, even tying the score a few times and making double the points as Hand (14-7) yet the Tigers still had the upper “Hand” 38-37.

The heartbreak came in the final quarter when the teams were tie at 49 and Hand won In the final minute after making 4 foul shots.

Amity’s Pointmakers:

Molly Dragan 15, Elise Graham 15 (including three 3-point goals), Kate Helfenbein had an excellent night, contributing 12 points, Melanie Hauser 5, Amanda Granados 2.

 

Hand’s top scoring players:
Junior Gabby Martin (#3) was the Tiger’s high scoring player with 15 points (including two 3-point goals), Paula Materin 13 (including two 3-pointers), and Colleen Caruth 8.

Records: Hand 14-4; Amity 12-6
