St. Mary’s girls basketball puts together solid effort in season opening win
LYNN -- Despite getting off to a slow start Monday night, the St. Mary’s girls basketball team turned up the heat in the second half and rolled to a 63-34 win over Catholic Central League foe Cathedral at Tony Conigliaro Gymnasium.
“I think there were some nerves and excitement early on just to be out here competing and playing in a game again,” said St. Mary’s coach Jeff Newhall. “A lot of the girls didn’t get much of a chance to play summer ball or AAU this year, so the rust was there early. But we played strong defense from start to finish and I think that really kept us in the game until we could start making some shots on the other end.”
