Lady Buccs

drop game

COVINGTON – Tri-Village wasn’t about to let Covington’s leading scorer Jessie Crowell beat them.

That was evident by the way the Lady Patriots swarmed to the ball when it was in Crowell’s hands – preventing the Covington senior from getting off her fade-away jumper or driving to the basket.

The result was just six points in the contest for Crowell, which forced Covington to look at other scoring options – options that kept the Lady Buccs in the game, but not enough to prevent Tri-Village from claiming a 47-40 victory on Covington’s home floor.

Samantha White had 12 points and Brooke Gostomsky added 11.

Newton remained undefeated at 3-0, 1-0 in the CCC, heading into a big test on Thursday when Indians will host unbeaten Tri-Village.
