EHS girls basketball wins two contests
The Everett High girls basketball team enjoyed a successful week, cruising to a pair of victories over Northeastern Conference opponents Danvers and Medford.
In a 60-46 triumph at Danvers last Tuesday, the Lady Crimson Tide led from pole-to-pole, jumping out to an early 9-2 advantage after the opening tip and never looking back.
Everett led 20-14 after the first period and 33-23 at the half. Danvers came out after the intermission with a triangle-and-two defense in an attempt to shut down the top two Lady Crimson Tide scorers, the backcourt duo of Yaz Guerrier (21 points on the night) and Jackie Emmanuel (16 points).
Danvers brought the lead under double digits on a few occasions, but
Everett’s Maddie Duraes (10 points) filled the void, dropping in a three-pointer and a pair of deuces, that thwarted the Lady Falcons’ defensive strategy and maintained the Lady Crimson Tide’s advantage at a healthy 45-34 after three periods, from where Everett brought home the victory.
Carolann Cardinale chip-ped in seven points, Kloe Cardillo hit for four, and Saunti Burton added two to round out the Everett scoresheet.
Three nights later, the Lady Crimson Tide entertained former Greater Boston League foe Medford and ran away to a 60-37 triumph.
This one never was in doubt for coach Tammy Turner and her crew, who bolted to a 13-3 lead in the opening period, which ballooned into a 29-12 bulge at the half and a 51-22 romp by the third buzzer.
Guerrier topped the scoresheet for Everett with 24 points, followed by Cardinale with 12, Emmanuel with 11, Duraes with seven, Vickie McCardle with four (on two steals and length-of-the-floor lay-ups), and Burton with two.
The Lady Crimson Tide, who now stand at 7-4 as they cross the halfway point of the season, were set to travel to Swampscott last night (Tuesday) and will host Beverly Friday evening. They will make the trek to Marblehead next Tuesday.
