EHS girls basketball splits with Medford, Malden

The Everett High girls basketball team split its two contests this past week with Greater Boston League (GBL) rivals Medford and Malden.

The Lady Crimson Tide edged Medford, 45-41, in what EHS head coach Riley Dunn termed “a tough and physical game.” 

Kayley Rossi led the way over the Lady Mustangs with 13 points and six assists. Teammate Nehemie Lucien reached double figures with 12 points.

Last Tuesday, Everett came up short to Malden, 53-39, in a contest that was closer than the final score would indicate.

Kaesta Sandy turned in a nice double-double for Everett with 10 points and 10 rebounds, Japhnie Pierre hit for 11 points and pulled down six boards.

“It was a tough game,” noted Dunn. “The score doesn’t do it justice, but we fought hard. A lot of players had to step up and fill new roles, so I am proud of them for accepting the challenge and trying their best.”

Dunn and her crew are scheduled to make the long trek to non-league foe Lawrence tomorrow (Thursday). They will make the much-shorter journey across the Parkway to GBL opponent Chelsea next Tuesday when they return from the holiday break.
