Bantam A girls suffer first loss in Christmas tourney
The OLS sixth-grade girls suffered their first defeat of the season, a 26-18 loss at the hands of Good Shepherd from Suffolk County. The teams faced off in the opening round of the Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament Christmas tournament.
Tina Khianis basket staked Snows to the early lead. The lead changed hands several times in the first half. Michelle Gasperettis free throw put OLS back into the lead once. Christine Wrynns outside shot gave the Snows their final lead of the game.
Good Shepherd led 11-8 at the half as neither team got many good looks at the basket. The girls from Suffolk opened up an 8-point lead during the third quarter, and OLS could not battle all the way back against a very tough Good Shepherd defense.
Adara Simonelli and Tina Khiani led OLS with 5 points each. Christine Wrynn scored 4 points and sister Jessica Wrynn added 2 points. Gasperetti and Nicole Weinman each hit a free throw to round out the Snows scoring. Nicole Kaouris also contributed to the Snows team effort.
The Snows team hopes for a rematch with Good Shepherd, but to make it happen it must battle all the way to the tournament final through the losers bracket of the double elimination tournament.
