The girls basketball team played Gorham, at home, on Monday, January 6th.
Windham scored first after they came onto the court with intensity. The Lady Eagles jumped to an early lead. They nabbed rebounds which made it very hard for Gorham to catch up in the first half. Sarah Talon, #12, had an exceptional block. Windham’s strong defense kept Gorham’s score low. Kayla Flanders, #22, scored right before the first buzzer.
Half: 30-14, Windham
Windham’s aggressiveness never lessened. Destiny Potter, #45, had a stellar block to keep Gorham from putting much of anything on the scoreboard. Windham was up by 15 with 3:38 left in the game. Gorham wasn’t able to recover and lost to the Lady Eagles for the first time in several years.
High scorers: Sarah Talon, #12, Carly Morey, #14, Hannah Talon, #33
“We needed to play 32 minutes of intense basketball and they showed that they can do that right from the start to the finish,” remarked coach Brody Artes. “They had a look in their eye today; they were very focused on going out and getting a win against a team we haven’t had a ton of success against in the past couple years. I thought our leadership was great, I thought they played great team basketball. The girls did a great job.”
