GL dominated the first half of the game with their high energy and drives to the basket. GL scored 21 points in the first quarter alone and gave the team the momentum they needed to continue to win.

GL led the scoreboard throughout the entire game, but the outcome became uncertain after half time with Plainfield’s shift in energy. Junior Michelle Coyle helped stabilize the game, however, by catching rebounds and stealing the ball for GL’s possession. Sophomore Fiona Kerr also stepped in to create turnovers and put the ball in GL’s possession, while Junior Ally McGlynn used her speed to carry the ball to the other side of the court. Coyle and McGlynn both chipped in four points.

The Lady Highlanders were able to easily bounce back by the fourth quarter despite Plainfield’s pressuring defense and 16 points made in the fourth quarter alone. GL’s 14 points scored in the last quarter was enough to keep their lead and finish off with a win.

The Super Saturday make-up game between the Lady Highlanders and neighborhood rivals New Providence Pioneers will be played Sunday, Jan. 22 with an 11:30 a.m. tip-off.
