EHS girls basketball cruises past Winthrop
The Everett High girls basketball team pulled away after a tight first period to post a 47-31 victory at Winthrop last Friday. The triumph lifts the Lady Crimson Tide above the .500 mark for the first time this season to a 5-4 record.
Everett held a slim 13-11 edge at the first buzzer, but a half-court, pressing defense in the second period resulted in a number of turnovers that the Lady Crimson created which in turn led to some fast-break baskets.
The strategy allowed Everett’s two-point advantage to blossom into 27-15 bulge at the half, a deficit from which Winthrop never recovered thereafter.
Yaz Guerrier led the Lady Crimson Tide with 27 points. Jackie Emmanuel hit for six points, Carolann Cardinale pitched in five, Maddy Duraes added three, and the trio of Kiana Wilkerson, Kloe Cardillo, and Saunti Burton added two apiece.
“This was a nice team effort and everybody got to play and contributed,” said EHS heads coach Tammy Turner.
Turner and her crew were scheduled to play at Danvers yesterday (Tuesday) and will host Medford Friday. They will trek to Swampscott next Tuesday.
