SOMERS, N.Y.-It wasn’t the result Somers’ girls basketball team wanted when it headed to John Jay-Cross River on Feb. 9, but the Tuskers still managed a share of the league championship after a 48-38 loss.
After a 15-point first quarter, Somers scored only two points in the second quarter to dig itself a hole it couldn’t climb out of.
Both teams finished league play 7-1. Somers won the first meeting when Hannah Angelini was fouled with two seconds left and made all three free throws to give the Tuskers a 40-39 victory.
In the rematch, Angelini and Dani DiCintio had nine points apiece. Pooja Rao added eight points and Jackie Penzo chipped in with five.
A night earlier, DiCintio was the hero in an overtime thriller against visiting Lakeland on senior night. The Tuskers trailed for the majority of regulation but DiCintio tied the game at 48-48 when she hit two free throws with 35.6 seconds left.
