Girls Get 7th Win
Lady Demons Stop Bucks in Crucial Win

The girls were challenged to communicate, play high quality help defense, and grind out a win so they could move from 5th place to the 4th place spot in the standings.  Well, they did just that. The first quarter ended with a shutout as the girls found themselves up 8-0. At the half, Dedham was up 16-5 and seemingly in command. Anna Drake played lockdown defense on Beech Hill’s top scorer but go into some foul trouble in the 3rd quarter.  The Lady Bucks made a 6-0 run to cut the lead to 5 midway through the 3rd quarter. However; some hard nosed aggressive defense by Charlotte Blanchard & the rest of the girls responded and kept the Bucks at bay.

    Leading the way on the defensive end were Charlotte Blanchard (3 steals, multiple deflections, and 2 points), Ellie Kuhl (4 steals, great court presence, 2 assists, 8 rebounds, and 4 points), & Anna Drake’s always annoying defensive pressure in the frontcourt.  She ended with 2 points, 2 steals, & 2 assists.

    Doing the hard work under the basket were 6th grade forwards Hailee Dearborn and Sara Young.  Hailee finished with 10 points, 3 steals, and 7 rebounds. Sara had 8 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals.  Julia Turner came in and gave multiple players a break. She ended up with a basket for 2 points and 2 rebounds.  Shelby Baughman grabbed 6 rebounds and had a steal, and Katherine Caron gave Dedham some quality minutes as well.

    Chloe, Kaitlyn, Abby, Bailey, Maggie, and Eve all supported the team with their energy throughout the game.  The girls move into 4th place and could finish as high as 3rd if they ‘win out’. League record: 6-5, Overall record:  7-5.  

    The girls head up to The Hangar to take on the Airline Jets on Wednesday.
