WOODBURY – The Woodbury Middle School girls basketball team had an easy time defeating Wamogo 52-15 on Tuesday, and raised its record to 6-5.
Warriors head coach Anthony Gonsalves said that this was the kind of game he was hoping his team would play all season. During its first 10 games, Woodbury had a habit of playing up to or down to its opponent’s level.
But Woodbury started strong out of the gate, and stormed to a 37-6 halftime lead.
“I think the girls really got after it,” Gonsalves said. “The hustle was amazing. We can’t dictate how we play based on how the other team is playing.”
Woodbury’s offense was very well rounded. Ella Lupo scored eight points, while Fiona Gengenbach scored 7 points and Erin Classey and Maddie Roden each scored 6 points.
Lupo had 11 rebounds, and Gengenbach had 10.
“The girls played much more relaxed than they ever play in general,” Gonsalves said. “I told them that in every game, that’s what they have to go in feeling like.”
Woodbury has five games remaining in the season, and travels to Eli Terry for its next game this Friday.
“We were hoping for 10 wins this season,” Gonsalves said. “So if we keep playing like this, we can be there.”
