"She played a couple minutes [in the second half], then you could just tell her body was shutting down," Taylor said.
The Lady Warriors held Bridgewater-Raritan to only six points in the second quarter and finished their scoring on a solid play, Keona Schenck sent a nice bounce pass to her twin sister Kennady Schenck who hit a nice lay-up. The first half ended with the Lady Warriors up 34-13.
