Randolph Girls Basketball Falls in Battle With Knolls


RANDOLPH, NJ-The Randolph Girls Varsity Basketball team had a tough game against a familiar foe on Wednesday Dec 20, as Morris Knolls dribbled into Randolph High School and left with a win by the score of 48-27.

As the Lady Rams entered the game, Morris Knolls caught them by surprise by scoring a swift 8 points, and the Golden Eagles ran their first period lead up to 16-5.

“We had a plan and certain goals to meet in order to win, but poor execution and lack of communication was why we lost.” said Junior Julia Wiersum.  “It is good to get these games out of the way at the beginning of the season as we can learn what we need to improve in order to be successful in the future.”

Starting off the second quarter strong, Wiersum scored 4 points, on a 3-pointer a foul shot. Alyssa Alfieri and Angeleen Mulero also put up points for the Lady Rams in the second, but Randolph was not able to keep pace, and trailed the Golden Eagles 31-13 at half.

Danielle Maxwell, senior captain of the team, felt her squad would have done better if they were not put in such a nerve racking situation with a tougher team.

“Wednesday’s game was a tough loss; the fact that it was our home opener made us a little more on edge, and we allowed our nerves to get the best of us.” said Maxwell.  “However we are going to use this loss as a learning tool to improve for future games.”

The Lady Rams fell into their comfort zone in the second half, and played to a relatively even score both quarters as their defense started to become more effective and the offense was more productive.

Knolls outscored Randolph by only three points in the second half, and the game ended with a Golden Eagles victory, 48-27. 

The top scorers for Randolph were Angeleen Mulero with 9 points and Julia Wiersum with 7 points.

The loss dropped the Lady Rams record to 0-2 at the time.  However, over the Winter Break, Randolph rebounded to win three out of four games, bringing their record up to 3-3 on the season.
