North Shore Girls Basketball Rolls Over Mineola 82-52

Lady Mustangs drop conference opener against Lady Vikings to drop to 3-3 record.

A 36 point second quarter proved too much for the Lady Mustangs varsity basketball team Wednesday night as they opened their conference schedule with a 82-52 loss at North Shore.

Lady Vikings starting point guards Amanda Johansen and Caroline Robertson scored 20 and 14 points respectively as the North Shore defense swarmed Mineola with their half court pressure. At times it was difficult for the Mustangs to move the ball to the other side of the court.

“Their defense caused us to commit to many turnovers and they were able to capitalize,” Mineola coach Denise Zunno said. “We rallied a little in the second half but fatigue became a factor for us down the stretch.”

Nobody played harder than senior forward Kerri Medlock who was a force on both ends of the court, coming back from a match the previous night to a double-double with a game high 22 points and 21 rebounds.

“Kerri was great for us getting rebounds and drawing fouls to get to the line," Zunno said, “but unfortunately North Shore had an answer every time we did something good.” 

Down 56-25 at halftime the Mustangs were able to put up their best quarter in the third with 15 points and poised to make a run. But the Vikings hit some key shots from the outside to stretch the lead and take the game.

The Lady Mustangs will go into the Christmas break with a 3-3 record before playing their next game at Clarke on January 3 at 6 p.m.
