Their teammates were happy to follow their lead as all 10 players contributed to a strong team effort, especially on the defensive end of the court where the Lady Phoenix forced their opponents into 32 turnovers. Despite struggling with foul trouble, So. Jailene Martinez scored 5 points and worked hard on the boards to limit the scoring chances of the Cavaliers. Fr. Chloe Blaylock scored 4 points while Jrs.

The time for celebration is limited as the Lady Phoenix plan to return to the gym later the same day to prepare for their next opponent, #2 seed and defending Western Maine champions, Richmond. The game will be played this Thursday at10 am. at the Augusta Civic Center.
