Girls Varsity Basketball

Royals, Sectional Champs

By: Todd Enders, "Royal Times"
Wynford girls basketball starts the tournament run off in impressive fashion with a 42-28 win over the New London Wildcats. The Royals used a great defensive effort to stop the 13-9 Wildcats. It appeared that New London was going to be a tough game for the Royals. It was obvious that tournament play had started from the onset of the game. The officials were letting the girls play with each team spending as much time on the floor as they were on their feet. The intensity of the game played right into the hands of the Royals. Wynford held a one point advantage at the end of quarter one, 11-10. This was the closest the Wildcats would be from this point forward. The Royals used their size forcing the ball into Brenna Quinn in the paint scoring 9 of her 10 points in the first half; giving the Royals a 21-16 lead at halftime. In the second half, the Royals used a different game plan on the offensive end of the court. They switched from looking into the paint to displaying their outside perimeter shooting skills. Wynford started out quickly in the third quarter with Ellie Richmond hitting a quick jumper and Meghan Harrer draining a three forcing New London to take a quick timeout with 5:51 remaining in the third. The timeout did not affect the Royals momentum with Alyssa
Harrer hitting a three putting the Royals up thirteen, 29-16. Wynford's defense had a major affect on the Wildcats the entire game. The Wildcats were held to just two points in the third quarter. Coach Taylor-Sheldon said, "The third quarter was a crucial point in the game, holding them to just two points. Our defense did a great job on the boards as well holding them to just two offensive rebounds through three quarters of play." Wynford outscored New London 14-2 in the third quarter taking a 35-16 lead. Wynford went into the fourth quarter with their 19 point lead and played a half court game; slowing the game down and being selective with shots. New London was forced to foul and Wynford went 5 for 10 from the foul line to seal the victory. The Royals were led in scoring by seniors Meghan Harrer with 15 and Brenna Quinn with 10.  The Lady Royals improve to 17-6 overall and advance to District Semi-final action to face Genoa on Thursday, February 27th at Seneca East High, 8:00 p.m.
