MORRISTOWN, NJ- The Colonials used a 16-4 first quarter to propel themselves into the Morris County Quarterfinals next weekend with a 55-41 victory. Morristown locked down on defense, forcing multiple Crusader turnovers while building their lead.
“Tara and Morgan did a terrific job marking their guards and forcing a lot of mistakes,” said head coach Jim Pisciotto. “They play with so much energy and toughness, and our team feeds off it.”
Michaela Lattimore led the Colonials with 15 points off the bench, with the moment not being too much for the freshmen.
“Michaela is so good at just letting the game come to her,” said coach Pisciotto. “I had to be reminded that she was a freshman, she didn’t look like it.”
Tara O’Neill and Kolby Lynch both recorded 13 points for Morristown, while Lynch grabbed a team-high 5 rebounds.
“Kolby is so versatile, and she does it all for this team,” said Pisciotto. “Between playing defense and guarding all positions, she was all over the floor for us.”
Morristown took a 14-point lead into the locker room and never looked back. These surging Colonials have now won 4 straight games and they will face top seeded and unbeaten Montville next weekend.
