Amity 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.
