With an 11 – 6 record coming into this out-of-league game Saturday, girls basketball was looking to seize a second victory in a busy week with three games. Monday saw a tough 32 – 19 loss to East Hampton, and Friday saw an easy 41 – 15 victory over Westbrook. Saturday’s game against Lyman Memorial High School at Old Lyme made it two out of three for this week’s games for the lady Wildcats.

There wasn’t  much to separate the two teams in the first quarter. Three minutes in, Lyme-Old Lyme was up four points with the Lyman Bulldogs failing to get on the scoreboard. Lyman’s #14 made a three-pointer to take the score to 4 – 3 with 4:55 left in the eight minute quarter. Two free throws from sophomore Taylor Thompson and a field goal from #35 gave a five point, 8 – 3 lead to the lady Wildcats with 2:15 left in the quarter. Two baskets from Lyman and a missed Old Lyme three pointer saw the score go to 8 – 7. With less than a minute left, Lyman stole the ball and had the chance to end the quarter winning but traveled. The quarter ended 8 – 7 to Lyme-Old Lyme.

Quarter two saw us become much more dominant. Four minutes in, the lady Wildcats were up 17 – 7 with the Bulldogs failing to get a basket. A layup from Lyman’s #23 finally got the Bulldogs their first two points of the quarter after five minutes. Baskets from seniors Maddie Zrenda and Jordan Lewis fought off the growling Bulldogs to end the half at 25 – 15, a much more comfortable lead.

The second half saw Lyme-Old Lyme just pull away from Lyman. At quarter three’s end, the lady Wildcats had extended their lead to 38 – 25. Quarter four saw Lyman desperately trying to come back but to no avail. The game ended 44 – 33 to Lyme-Old Lyme.

Girls Basketball takes on Old Saybrook Monday for another home game at 7:00.
