NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - After a first half where the Lady Pioneers dominated all aspects of the game, the wheels came off the axel in the final 16 minutes as The Patrick School, led by the 3-point prowess of Quadashah Hoppie, pummeled New Providence, outscoring them 25-4 in the third quarter and ultimately winning 47-36.

The Lady Pioneers got off to a hot start as the forward tandem of junior Sydney Morang and sophomore Hannah Caminiti accounted for all of the teams’ first half points.  Morang had 14 and Caminiti had eight in the first 16 minutes, propelling New Providence thus far.

The Lady Celtics flipped the switch in the second half as they were unconscious from long range, while locking down all of the Lady Pioneers defensively.

A 25-4 run throughout through out the third and a strong fourth kept The Patrick School out front and they never let New Providence back in the game.

Morang finished with a team-high 24 points.

The Lady Pioneers have another tough test ahead of them as they travel to Rumson-Fair Haven to take on Notre Dame-bound Marina Maybrey and the 10-1 Manasquan Warriors on Sunday at 4:15 p.m.
