There are always one or two players on the team that you can always count on to take the big shot to win the game. When you have more than one player who can at least get open to take that open shot, it can only lead to success. It's no secret that Nicole Jones can dominate a game, but it is evident that the entire squad gets the create for the Lady Garnets winning ways. In a very competitive game, the Lady Lions from Lindenwold put up a great fight but loss to Haddon Heights by a score of 47-42.
Lindenwold had won 5 out of their last 7 games and wanted to get back on the winning streak after losing to Paulsboro by nine points. Haddon Heights meanwhile suffered their first loss of the season last week against the division leaders Haddonfield and were ready to continue another winning streak against Lady Lions.
Both teams played pretty evenly for two quarters with Heights holding a 1-point lead to start the second half. Alicia Campiglia aggressive play kept the game close with Carnora Johnson and Samantha Flynn both crashing the offensive boards. But it was the starting five that took control of a close game and turned it into another victory for the Lady Garnets. Jones led all scorers with 21 points while Shamarra Adams chipped in 10 points and Megan Heuter added 11 for Haddon Heights. Lindenwold's Carnora Johnson had 10 points, but Alicia Campiglia had a team high 17 for the Lady Lions.
