IMG_1516Amity hosted Lyman Hall Tuesday Jan. 20 in Woodbridge.

The Lady Spartans has not had the best season so far with a 5-5 record leading up to last night’s game, and senior captain Janaya Young is still on the injured list.

Going up against Lyman Hall with a 5-4 record prior to the game, Amity really needed a win.

The game’s top scoring player was Amity’s junior Molly Dragan (#23) with 20 points, followed by Elise Graham (#24) with 14 points.

Dragan and Kaitlin Thomas each made one 3-point goal. Graham had 10 rebounds and 4 steals and Dragan had 7 assists.

Lyman’s Senior Emma Sears (#4) scored 17 points and Sophomore Sabrina Smith (#20) contributed 14. At 5’5″ junior Alyssa McCann (#1) was a force to be reckoned with, she only scored 2 points, but she was fast and easily sneaked in to block shots and kept things interesting.

Sears made a 3 point goal and Smith made two for the Trojans.

Quarter by quarter

The Lady Spartans took a quick jump on the Trojans, ending the first quarter 12-10.

In the second quarter Amity piled on 14 points to Lyman’s 6, keeping a sizable 26-16 lead going into the half.

Amity stayed strong in the third quarter adding 16 points to Lyman’s 10 and went into the final quarter with a comfortable 42-26 lead.

The Trojans fought back in the fourth quarter racking up 19 points to Amity’s 12, still it wasn’t enough to overtake the Lady Spartans.
