Redwood 62, Justin-Siena 36
It was “Senior Night” for Justin-Siena’s Ally Jackson, Mary Minigan and Emmy Morrison.
The Braves (12-12 overall, 6-7 Marin County Athletic League) played much better against Redwood the second time around, staying close the entire first half and being down 27-19 going into halftime.
Redwood, however, pulled away in the third quarter and put it away in the fourth quarter.
Ashlee Whittemore scored 16 points and had four rebounds and two steals to lead the Braves.
Ally Jackson (nine points, five rebounds, two steals), Emmy Morrison (five points, two rebounds), Mary Minigan (three points, two assists), Mikhaela Cepeda (three points), and Karlie Wells (two rebounds) also stood out.
“I thought we played much better than the score indicated,” said coach Andy Bettencourt. “We were able to limit turnovers and their offensive rebounds for the most part, and we got a good amount of open shots, and just weren’t able to convert enough of them to keep up.
“Overall, still a good night as we got to honor three seniors who have meant a lot to this program and school. They are a great group of kids and it has been a privilege to coach them the past three years. We are hoping to keep their senior seasons going as long as possible.”
