Crunch time win

Viselli, Sachems rally in showdown

(Continued)

Senior center Tess Nogueira led Pentucket with 13 points and 11 rebounds and Kelsi McNamara, despite battling sickness, came up with a key basket in Pentucket’s 13-5 fourth-quarter run.

“It was nice to see us step up in a big game,” said McNamara. “We need more games like this.”

For Ipswich, 5-11 senior Julia Davis led all scorers with 15 points, but she only scored five points after a red-hot first quarter.

This was the first meeting between the teams since the defending state champion Sachems beat Ipswich 49-30 in last year’s North finals. Both teams agree that they very well may meet again in the finals again this year.
