Warwick girls stay unbeaten

Jim O’Brien said his Warwick girls basketball players are more times than not the tougher team on the court.

Undefeated Warwick met its match in physical play Friday night in a non-league home game against Kingston.

The undefeated Wildcats went ice cold on offense in the third quarter, scoring just two points on Shannon McNally’s basket 30 seconds into the second half. Warwick had its six-point halftime lead erased entering the fourth quarter.

Kingston’s Nicole Spinelli gave the Tigers their first lead (26-24) since 3-2 41 seconds into the fourth quarter. Warwick would answer with a 6-0 run on Emily Welling’s layup and four straight points by Lauren Desrats. Welling’s 3-point play with 1:44 left seals Warwick’s 38-30 win and its 15th straight win.

“Kingston is super, super tough and super feisty and they battle,” O’Brien said. “We are typically the team that outtoughs you and they matched us and that took us back a little bit. We were able to recover and a lot of it was Lauren making key shots in the end. We were able to move the ball appropriately and get that little small lead and able to maintain it.”
