RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph Lady Rams basketball team delighted their crowd on “Fan Appreciation Night” by defeating their rivals from Roxbury on Friday Jan. 20.  The game was a low scoring, defensive battle, in which Randolph had to come from behind in the second half to earn the win by a score of 26-20.

“With Randolph vs. Roxbury, the games are always close with us, and it doesn’t matter if one team is good and one is not,” said Rams coach Pete Torres.  “We expected that kind of game tonight, and we are happy we came out of it with the win.”

The Gaels took control early, grabbing a 7-3 lead in the first quarter.  The defenses of both squads continued to dominate the game in the second, as the teams traded only four points apiece and the half ended with the Rams trailing 11-7.

“For the last couple weeks, our defense has been great,” said Torres.  “That part of our game has been carrying us, as it did again tonight.  Our offense comes and goes a bit as we saw happen in this game.”

The Lady Rams found just enough of that offense in the second half to get the job done, scoring 10 points out of the locker room to grab the lead in the third.  Their defense continued to lock down on Roxbury, holding the Gaels to only nine second half points, as the Rams padded their lead in the fourth to secure the final margin of 26-20.

Door prizes, raffles, and half time festivities made the game a fun atmosphere for all fans in attendance..

The Lady Rams were incredibly balanced on the score sheet, led by Hanah Murphy and Ellie Sciancalepore with five points apiece, followed by Alana Miniovich, Courtney Whiting, and Julia Wiersum who all contributed four points each in the win.

“The girls are coming along well as a team this season, and our captains have done a good job of being leaders, said Torres.  “They talk a lot in practice and the team works hard, they certainly have done what we have asked of them.”

The Lady Rams, who are now 8-4 on the season, hit the court again on Monday Jan. 23 against Morris Knolls at 7 p.m.
