Other scorers in the game were Tessa Alguire (4 points), Olivia White (4 Points) Sara Aldous (2 points) and Haley Brunet (1 Point).
“This group always plays hard and goes on the court with a lot of energy. You can’t ask for anything more as a coach. We almost squeaked one out today just with our hustle and athletic ability. It will be fun to see Massena again after Christmas and see how much we improve. Winnie Downs had a great game. She really made an effort two get to the basket today and it showed in the scorebook.” stated coach, Mike Wentworth.
The young Bears will be at home on Thursday night in Jerry Hourihan gymnasium squaring off with the Malone Huskies. Tip off is scheduled for 5:30pm. Remember if you are planning on attending Thursday nights games that a mask is required at all indoor sporting events.
