CRANFORD, NJ - Last week the Cranford Cougars Girls Basketball team took on Roselle Catholic and came away with a big win. At the time of the meeting, Roselle Catholic was ranked fifteenth in the state and first in the county and conference.
After starting the season a bit slow, according to Cougars Coach Jackie Dyer, the team has been working hard and the win over Roselle Catholic was very exciting. Dyer comments, "It was a huge win for us. It was the first time in my 9 years of coaching that we have beaten Roselle Catholic at home and by double digits.  The girls have been working very hard each and every day in practice and it's really nice to see all of their hard work pay off.  I am extremely excited for the rest of the season and expect amazing things to come from this team."
The win included two players, Cerys MacLelland and Lyndsay Pace, netting 14 points a piece for Cranford, while Lauren Williamson had 13 points of her own, Camryn Wichelns had 9 and Isabella Speer added 2.
The Cougars now have a 2-3 record and look forward to their next game, meeting Plainfield this evening at home at 4:00 p.m.
