Shaking off the rust

'Immune' Kilian helps Sachems rally into championship game

(Continued)

Indeed, Kilian — who played sparingly as a freshman — was on the court the whole game, also contributing six rebounds and two steals, but she didn’t mind.

“It’s the first time I’ve done that,” she said. “It was hard, but I knew everyone else was tired.

“I am gaining more confidence. I was nervous in the beginning of the year, but my teammates were really supportive.”

While, as has sometimes been the case, Pentucket’s offense was spotty, the defense once again never rested, and there were plenty of contributors to the win. Viselli led both the scoring (13 points) and rebounding (12) and Tess Nogueira chipped in with 12 points and eight rebounds.

“We’ll have to play better tomorrow, but I give the girls credit for battling,” said McNamara. “Newton South is a good team and they were really shooting the ball well in the first half.”
