Amity girls basketball stumbles down stretch
The Amity girls took a lead into the final quarter, but committed too many turnovers down the stretch and lost 38-33 Monday night at home to Portland Adventist Academy in nonleague action.
After recording just six turnovers in the first half, Amity had 13 in the second, most of which came in the final eight minutes.
“In the forth quarter we played like we were down 10 or 15,” said head coach Reg McShane. “We’re young and we make some of those mistakes. HOpefully we can take care of those going forward.”
Madelynn Krotzer played strong ball on both ends of the court, McShance said, “which we’ve needed.” The sophomore guard finished with 11 points and four rebounds.
Lindsay McShance also had 11 points to go with a team high nine rebounds.
The Warriors outrebounded the Cougars 36-21, and had 15 offensive rebounds.
Caitlin Dumler finished with five points and eight rebounds. Caitlin Dumler had eight rebounds, Victoria Howard had seven and Maddie Worthington finished with six boards.
Amity shot 11 for 34 on two-point field goals but missed all 10 3-point attempts.
“Our shooting wasn’t as good as it’s been, but you’ll have nights like that,” McShance said. “It was a good game for us. They’re a good ballclub. They have good size inside and are very athletic.”
McShane added, “It could have gone either way. We know we got to take care of the ball if we want to beat the good teams in league.”
