St. Patrick-St. Vincent 68, Justin-Siena 44
Playing the first regular-season home game in newly renovated Dan Clark Gym on Tuesday night, the Braves (0-2) took their last lead in the second quarter before the Bruins closed the half on a 15-0 run for a 37-20 lead.
Justin-Siena pulled within 48-40 by the end of the third quarter behind three 3-pointers from Mary Minigan – who had a career-high 15 points – but St. Pat’s pulled away in the fourth.
Ashlee Whittemore also had a big night with 12 points, 14 rebounds and two assists for the Braves, and Ally Jackson had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists.
Emmy Morrison supplied three points and six rebounds, Karlie Wells had two points and three rebounds, Ella Thatcher added two points while playing very well defensively, and Kiran Monteverdi grabbed seven rebounds and dished two assists.
“Overall, we are proud of the effort and execution we had in this game,” Justin-Siena head coach Andy Bettencourt said. “We did not shoot the ball well at all, and were still right in the game going into the four4th quarter. We have to do a better job of rebounding on the defensive end of the floor to give teams less opportunities to score. We are confident that we will continue to get better and happy with the progress of our team so far.”
The Braves’ next game is at 4 p.m. Dec. 6 against El Molino in the first round of the Redwood Empire Invitational at Healdsburg.
