The Cambridge girls have done many things well this basketball season on both sides of the ball. Turn teams over defensively, rebound and obviously score the ball with deep shooting prowess, but the most consistent thing the Indians have done thus far is put a number in the win column at game’s end.
Twelve times the ball’s gone up for Cambridge this year, and at the end of the run they’ve walked off with a “W” the last coming Thursday night in a 67-41 decision over Greenwich.
Cambridge exploded for 28 points in the first period giving the Indians a 12 point lead, a working margin that steadily expanded throughout with Cambridge winning all four quarters of play.
Freshman Sophie Phillips scored a career-high 31 points, knocking back 7 triples to lead Cambridge on the night with her sister Lily adding 14 points in the Indians 8th straight league victory.
Kylee Masse paced the Witches attack scoring 17 points for Greenwich.
Cambridge host’s Waterford tonight and is back in action on Saturday when they travel to Mechanicville to take on the talented Raiders in a 1:30 matinee. The two squads met just ten days ago in a game that the Raiders led 25-22 at the half, before Cambridge took control with a 24-5 third quarter on their way to the 61-46 “W”.
