FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Franklin's Diamond Miller scored a game-high 23 points and led the Franklin Lady Warriors to a decisive 78-56 victory over Bridgewater-Raritan in the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 championship game at Franklin High School Monday. 

Bridgewater-Raritan got off to a fast start and led the Lady Warriors 5-0 early in the first quarter until Miller hit her first of three 3 point shots from deep, and then immediately followed it up with a strong layup to tie the game 5-5. 

Monique Davis-Campbel quickly hit a field goal to put the Lady Warriors up 7-5, and from that point on they never relinquished the lead.

"We started making defensive stops and I think at that point we got some transition buckets," Franklin Head Coach Audrey Taylor said. "That gave us a little run, that gave us a little more energy. I think once we got midway through the third quarter we got on a run that helped give us more confidence and took the air out of them."

Bridgewater-Raritan battled during the second quarter and kept the game close by only trailing seven points, 40-33 going into the second half. 

The third quarter started out fairly even until Franklin called a timeout at the 4:22 mark with the score 46-42. After the timeout the Lady Warriors went on a quick 5-0 run that Bridgewater-Raritan never seemed to recover from. 

Four Lady Warriors had double-digit points, Keona Schenck dropped 18 points, her twin sister Kennedy Schenck added 15 points with nine of them coming from behind the arc. Monique Davis-Campbell netted 14 points. 

Three players from Bridgewater-Raritan scored double-digit points - Katie Kowal scored 14 points while Kristin Tribel and Teresa Wolak both added 13 points of their own for Bridgewater-Raritan.

Bridgewater-Raritan ends the season with a record of 17-11.
