Inside The Game
Post jumped out to an early 9-0 lead. Senior forward Camille Nwosu (Centreville, VA) put up the first Warrior bucket at 17:46 and later in regulation, classmate Audrey Matteson (Monticello, IN) would put Nyack ahead by one (17-16) after a 6-0 run that helped trim the deficit. As Post fought to regain momentum, thirteen unanswered point beginning at 6:27 was enough to ignite the flame and send the Warriors into the locker room trailing 48-33. In the second half the Lady Warriors never saw another lead as Nack would get out scored 47-37 and the Lady Eagles walked away with the 90-75 game win.
Warrior Audrey Matteson lead all scorers with 27 points, classmate Nwosu recorded a game high 8 rebounds along with a season-bests 12 points, and Tori Trador (Seminole, FL) dished a team high-4 assists while chipping in with 11 points in the losing effort. On the Eagles side four would land double figures; Raven Wright-James with a game-high 28 points, Hailey Griffin with 20 points, Aubrey Latham with 19 points, and Liz Falcigno with 12 points respectively.
