Game Summary

The team struggled to find their rhythm in the first half, ending the half being down by six points. Despite fine rebounding by the team as a whole, we allowed too many open shots. That changed in the second half as the team pushed Deerfield to the brink with a tough 3-1-1 press in the second half. The press, headed by Stephanie Makowski ’19 Jinaiya Grizzle ’21 and Amy Xia ’21, put great pressure on the Deerfield backcourt, forcing numerous turnovers. Slowly over the course of the half, we crawled to within a basket with two minutes to go, but we could not get the crucial tying basket. Sophia Botero ’21, Nyla Johnson ’22 and Amy Xia ’21 all had six points and Stephani Makowski added four to the team’s total. Nyla, Sophia and Lucia-Hope all rebounded well and Alexis Berard ’19 and Natalia Grossman ’21 both played good strong defense coming off the bench.
