Turnover Troubles for the Lady Broncos


by Sue LaRoche

Cassie Larocque is making a lay-up

Just prior to the game against Manchester Central on Friday night, Coach Karen Bonney could be heard saying that the girls had to maintain control of the ball to be competitive in the game.  Unfortunately, the Lady Broncos did anything but what their coach suggested.

“The girls weren’t very patient on offense tonight,” said a disappointed Bonney.  “Too many turnovers.”

Alvirne stayed competitive in the first half, as they only trailed by 5, going into halftime 30-25.  But the Broncos couldn’t maintain the intensity and they went down 43-31 in the third, and only managed to score 2 points in the final quarter as the ball just couldn’t find the bottom of the net.  The Broncos lost this one 59-33.

DJ Purcell led the scoring with 10 points and 3 rebounds, followed by Ashley Metivier with 7 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals.  Kate Donovan added 6 points, 2 rebounds, 1 blocked shot, and 1 steal.  Ashley Tomaswick returned to the court following a knee injury that she suffered in the playoff game against Salem High last season.  This evens the Broncos record at 3-3 on the season.

The junior varsity squad also lost to Central by the score of 61-53.  Cathryn Fernandes led the scoring with 14 points, Delaney Burns added 13 points, and Kelly Foley added 9 points.  The Broncos will play Dover at home on January 27.
