Girls’ Basketball: Amity Comes From Behind, Defeats Branford

The Lady Spartans Girls Basketball team hosted the Branford Hornets in Woodbridge on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

It was a rough start for Amity with Branford taking a 4 point lead 14-10 in the first quarter.

Amity overcame them by one point 22-21 in the second, then fell behind again, 28-36 in the third.

Throughout the game the Lady Spartans were very aware of where their hands were and didn’t have many fouls against them.

In the fourth quarter with Branford up by one point 40-39 and just 3:20 remaining on the clock, the Spartans came alive and the Hornets got a little sloppy, pushing and tripping the hometown girls allowing for numerous successful foul shots in the final moments of the game.

It was a nailbiter, but Amity came through at the last minute with a 53-40 victory.


Scoreboard

Amity        10 22 28 53 

Branford 14 21 36 40

Branford’s Adrienne DiGioia was the game’s high scoring player with 18 points.

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, The Amity Lady Spartans Girls’ Basketball Team hosted the Branford Hornets in Woodbridge.

Amity enjoyed the biggest comeback since the Patriots vs Falcons Superbowl game… well, maybe not THAT dramatic, but they certainly didn’t lose.

Yet, this is the “fake news” that my personal favorite sports site reported in its Tuesday roundup:

BRANFORD 40, AMITY 28
(at Amity)
Branford 14 7 15 4 – 40
Amity 10 12 6 0 – 28

BRANFORD (40)

3-point goals: Branford 4 (DiGioia 1, Pierson 2, Araneo 1); Amity 3 (Granados 1, Martin 2)

What? That’s not what happened! I’m sure it was just an e-mail glitch or something.

In any case, we’ll have the true, current story up on Orange Live later this morning.
