Governor Livingston Proves to be Too Much for Summit

January 23, 2013 at 12:35 AM

SUMMIT, NJ- Governor Livingston seniors Mallary George and Erin Ferguson both reached double figures as the Highlanders defeated Summit, 41-25, on Tuesday night.

George, who had 13 points on the night, didn’t try to force things early on.

“I let the game come to me, and it opened up the floor for the other girls, especially in the post for Erin,” she said.

The first quarter started off fast with both teams trading baskets as Governor Livingston gained a slight lead at 8-6. However, that was the closest Summit would get, as the Highlanders would close the quarter on an 8-0 run. George and classmate Alyssa Cranston both had six points to pace the Highlanders.

Highlander head coach Andy Silvagni had his team pressing at first, but changed strategy to help turn the tide.

“Summit was beating our press early and keeping it close so I decided to get out of it and play them tough in the halfcourt,” he said.

The second quarter saw little scoring as the Highlanders turned up the defense and held Summit to two points. The Highlanders outscored the Hilltoppers 9-2 and went into halftime with a 15-point lead.

The second half would be much of the same for Summit, as it struggled to solve the Hilltoppers zone defense scoring 15 points in the final two quarters.

George spoke of her team’s urgency to push the ball and take Summit out of the game.

“We just started pushing the tempo after a rebound and it allows us to get the defense on their toes and control the game,” George said.

Ferguson scored 10 points, while Cranston and Patrice DiTommaso both chipped in with six points. Summit got five points from Jenny Martino and four points from Katie Chase.
