Morristown 36 - Alex Bay 26: Hailey Ward scored 11 fourth quarter points leading a 15-3 run by the 4-9 Rockets to a second straight win. Ward finished with a game-high 14 points and Emma Showers, Riley Showers, Mia Johnson and Emilie Gagnon all dropped four points. Carly Piercey and Kassidy Sullivan each added two points.
"Their length gave us some trouble. Their big girl inside had a bunch of blocks. We only scored two points in the third quarter but we were able to use or press to get some turnovers and pick up the speed of the game," said Morristown Coach Stan Piercey.
"We were able to get out and run and Hailey Ward did a great job beating everyone down the court to score layups. We have busy week ahead. We play at Colton-Pierrepont on Friday and play Beaver River at home on Saturday. Hopefully we can keep playing hard and we need to make some jump shots."
Hailee Bain led Alex Bay with 10 points and Lundy Monica followed with seven. Rounding out the Purple Ghost scoring were: Bridget Watson (4), Jenna Leshkevich (3) and Liv McCarty (2).
