SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – What a difference six days can make. Last Tuesday the Lady Patriots of Colonia came from behind to beat the South Plainfield Lady Tigers 48-34. The two teams met earlier today in the preliminary round of the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament, but this time there was no comeback, as a stout Tiger defense stymied Colonia all game long en-route to a 47-18 thrashing of Colonia.

“I’m really proud of the way we came out today,” said South Plainfield Head Coach Kevin Hughes. “They had just beaten us by 14 points, but we really focused on defending their shooters and getting out in transition. We contested every shot and when we got turnovers we converted them into points”

The Tigers efforts to contest Colonia’s shooters was a huge success. South Plainfield held Colonia’s Angie Barrett and Noelle Bost to just five combined points. Last Tuesday the duo tossed in 25.

On the offensive side of the ledger it was all Caity Hughes. The Tiger senior standout had a game high 27 points and seven steals. South Plainfield led 15-4 at the end of the 1st quarter and never looked back. South Plainfield held Colonia to no more than five points in any quarter of the game.

The victory advances South Plainfield to the 1st round of the GMCT tournament against rival powerhouse and 2nd seeded Bishop George Ahr. The game is set for this Wednesday away in Edison.
