Broughton Varsity Girls played a tough game tonight against Millbrook. It was Broughton 29 Millbrook 30 at halftime. The girls played great defense and eventually were able to cause Briana Day (UNC Recruit) and another starter for Millbrook to foul out because we drove to the basket. In the third quarter, with 27.4 seconds to go, the score was Broughton 41 Millbrook 42.
The Lady Caps led by Justice Byrd, Adrienne Simmons, sisters Kaila and Nadine Ealey and guard Megan Sullivan matched Millbrook head to head. Kimberly Spruill and Jamella Foster also contributed with strong play. The Lady Caps pushed the Millbrook girls and created a turnover with a technical called on their team. Then Millbrook changed their strategy and played a zone defense which caused some turnovers for Broughton.
The final score was Broughton 53 Millbrook 62. This does not reflect how great our girls played and how hard they fought to win this game. All of the other girls on the team showed great support: Catherine Becton, Emily Newton, Maddie Massarelli, Ellis Wall, Laura Robertson (injured) and Nicole Bellamy (injured). Coach Dayna Jordan coached a great game. Congratulations Lady Caps!!!
