The Girls White Basketball Team avenged a 20-point loss to Plainview with a 37-30 victory in a game played in the noisy Dawg pound. With the girls clinging to a two-point lead entering the fifth period of play, they pulled off the impossible by shutting out Plainview in the quarter and gaining an emotional, hard-fought and deserving win. Two outstanding games were turned in by co-captains Jodie Schoppmann and Ashley Tonno each of whom scored 14 and controlled the action throughout. Schoppmann's clutch free throw with 24 seconds remaining sealed the victory. Tonno inspirationally pulled herself off the deck late in the game, after taking an elbow to the nose, to score the final two points.
Elena O'Brien, playing with a taped ankle, scored five and ripped down 13 rebounds. Jessica Marciano added two while pulling in five boards. Jodie Rose rounded out the scoring with two points and four rebounds. The Dawg defense was stifling as the girls also shutout Plainview in the second quarter. Contributing to the defensive effort were Elizabeth Dinolfo, Theresa Grassi, Chelsea Marciano, Allison McVeigh, April Orthner, Dana Rinaldi, Rebecca Santoriello, Kristen Schafer, Corinne Vinberg and Jamie Zetterberg. Truly a team effort by a team who refused to quit. Congratulations girls, you deserved this one!
