Girls Basketball: Tigers Have No Mercy On Lady Spartans

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Sports, Today's Events  Comments Off on Girls Basketball: Tigers Have No Mercy On Lady Spartans
Jan 202018
 

Mercy High School is known for its strong sports teams, so when the Lady Spartans Basketball team hosted the Tigers in Woodbridge on Friday night they knew they were in for a battle.

The Tigers took an early 3 point lead in the first quarter 15-12, and with each quarter pulled further ahead of Amity 25-17 in the second quarter.

They dominated the third quarter with 16 points to Amity’s 5 — 41-22.

The Lady Spartans fought back in the final quarter getting in 12 points to the Tigers’ 14, but they were never able to recuperate from Mercy’s earlier lead. Even Derek Graham’s presence at the game didn’t bring Amity any luck. Mercy is a tough team to beat, they play to win and their coach will accept nothing less. They squashed the Lady Spartans 55-34.
