It was a game that went back and forth for three quarters with each team wishing they could re-do that quarter over again. The Camden Catholic girl’s basketball team had a slight lead over Haddon Heights at halftime, but the teams scored only a total of nine points during the second quarter. After re-establishing the lead in the third quarter 28-26, the Garnets found themselves scoreless long enough for Camden Catholic to pull away 38-29 for the win. The Irish defense held Haddon Heights to only point in the final quarter during the Cougar Girl’s Basketball Classic held at Cherry Hill East.

Camden Catholic went back to the basics with defense taking center stage. Haddon Heights managed to apply a trapping defense that was successful during the third quarter, but the tables were turned during the final quarter. Kate Gallagher (10 points) and Jackie Reilly (8 points) led the scoring for Camden Catholic. Samantha LaPergola scored 9 points while Nicole Jones finished with 8 points for Haddon Heights.
