Westfield Girls Basketball Falls to Union in UCIAC Semifinal, 52-41; Knapp Nets Her 1,000th Point

February 25, 2014 at 11:08 PM

RAHWAY, NJ — Westfield junior Jackie Knapp scored her 1,000th point in the Union County Tournament girls basketball semifinal game Tuesday evening against Union. Although junior Lillian Scott led the Lady Blue Devils with 17 points and Knapp contributed 13 points to the score, Union defeated Westfield, 52-41.

“We played hard … and that’s all you can ask for. Just keep playing hard on them,” said Westfield head coach Joe Marino. “They all work hard.”

Union took the lead from the start of the game and maintained it until the end, though Westfield applied high pressure and were able to force many turnovers, allowing them to close the spread to a four-point game early in the third quarter.

The fourth quarter began with Union leading, 32-28, and from there the Farmers took off. The gap grew larger as Union pulled away. Westfield reached seven fouls by the middle of the fourth quarter, providing more opportunities for Union to score.

Knapp hit a three in the middle of the fourth to receive the 1,000th point of her high school basketball career.

“It feels great to get to 1,000 points. It’s something I worked towards my whole life,” said Knapp. “However, it’s bittersweet because we lost. I wanted to win.”

Additionally, the Farmers took advantage of the offensive rebounds, adding to the scoreboard and securing their lead.

“The team played hard today, but we didn’t box out well. We gave them a lot of second and third chances, which really hurt us,” said Knapp.

Union will advance to the UCIAC Finals at Kean University Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Westfield looks ahead to play Dickinson in the first round of sectionals at home on March 4 at 7 p.m.
