NEW YORK MILLS - Traveling to New York Mills, yesterday, December 21, the S-E girls’ varsity basketball came from behind to win big.
Down most of the game, the Marauder girls had to fight hard to keep themselves in the game. The first quarter ended with the girls down by just one, but the second quarter would see New York Mills play their best basketball. The home team scored 26 on the back on their team’s high scorer Cassidy Albright. Albright had 19 of her 38 total points during the second.
Coming out of the locker room at half time S-E was down 40-28 and knew that they needed to make a change. In the third they decreased New York Mills lead by one point, but the fourth quarter saw them play their best basketball.
S-E stepped it up on defense to hold the home team to only eight points in the fourth quarter, while they shot lights out scoring 25.
The Marauder women were only down by two with 1:33 left to play. It was then that Savannah Irwin hit a three to give S-E the lead. The rest of Irwin’s team mates followed her lead and sunk key baskets to give themselves some much needed breathing room. Lily Berg and Miranda Wright both were instrumental in sealing their victory late as they gave the game its final score of 74-68.
