Girls Basketball Makes Headlines For Close Win Over Howard

"Archmere responded to the adversity, holding the Wildcats scoreless for the final 4:37 of the game and scoring the remaining seven points in a 30-23 win."

On December 13th the girls basketball team traveled to Howard High School of Technology to take on the Wildcats, their fourth game of the season. The Auks dominated most of the game, heading into halftime with a 19-13 lead, and the deficit grew to nine at 22-13 within five minutes into the third quarter.
Howard started chipping away at the lead, however, thanks to their pressure defense. By the fourth quarter, the score was 22-18, and with 4:37 left to go the game was tied. 

"A minute later, Brynn Bastian-Pastore scored inside for the go-ahead points on a nice feed from Emily Mayo. The two paired up again the next time down the floor to double the lead to four. Neither team was able to add any points until the final minute of the contest. Archmere rebounded a missed shot with about 50 seconds remaining, and the Auks burned some 20 seconds of that before Oliver got open underneath for a layup. Sara Denning blocked a Wildcats shot at the other end, and Oliver ended the scoring with a free throw in the final seconds."

Lucy Oliver '24 had 14 points and 20 rebounds. Archmere improved to 3-1 and will be off until December 27, when they face Polytech at 1:30 p.m. in the Viking Invitational at the St. Elizabeth Center.
