Patriot girls post back-to-back wins
One of the goals for the Freedom Patriots this season is to improve on last year's record of four wins, and with back-to-back victories last week, the Patriots are on their way.
Freedom defeated Northampton, 41-35, last Tuesday, and Wilson, 41-28, last Thursday.
"We kind of came out slow [against Northampton], but we knew it was our game," said Freedom guard, Brenna Dosedlo.
The Patriots came back from an 18-13 deficit at halftime, scoring 14 points in the third quarter and 14 more in the fourth.
"I think we were settling for outside shots, and we're not hittting our outside shots right now, so we were trying to drive more. My shot isn't 100% right now, so I tried to pass to the post more, drive, and do different things," Dosedlo said.
Despite some shooting woes, Dosedlo did score a three-pointer, as did Tori McCaslin.
The Patriots also picked up on defense in the second half.
"We played better defense, and we kept their main scorer to single digits. That was our goal," said Dosedlo.
Dosedlo led the Patriots in scoring with 12 points, followed by Taylor Garza who had nine points. Ashley Gordon added seven points, and Kelly Rosete scored six. Ashley Husser chipped in four points, and McCaslin had three.
Dosedlo said, "We definitely improved a lot from our first game, but we hope we can get a few more wins."
Also last week, Central Catholic outlasted Liberty, 42-40. Maggie Zerbe led with 17 points for the Hurricanes. Liberty then defeated Dieruff, 54-29, on Friday.
Bethlehem Catholic outlasted Nazareth, 51-45. Kalista Walters had 24 points, 12 rebounds, and six blocked shots for the Hawks. Becahi then defeated Whitehall, 62-22, on Friday.
