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

Bridgewater got off to a fast start and led the Lady Warriors 5-0 early in the first quarter until Diamond 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 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.

The Lady Warriors will play Morristown this Wednesday at Union High School.
