Attleboro Extends Winning Streak!

It wasn’t a pretty win but it was a W, as Attleboro defeated Foxboro 44-38.  The victory gave the Bombardiers 6 in a row and an 8-3 record!

Beth Clifton put the girls in blue on the scoreboard first and followed up by going coast to coast for a 4-0 lead.  Kerri Beland, Bri LaPlume and Sarah Deyo gave Attleboro a 10-0 lead and it wasn’t until 3:48 remaining in the first quarter that Foxboro broke into the scoring column.  Kim Runey hit for 2 and the quarter ended with Attleboro holding a 12-7 margin.

Beland opened the second 8 minute segment and 2 from the charity stripe by Emily Houle gave the Bombardiers a 16-9 lead.  Foxboro followed with a Cassidy Harrison basket but a hoop by Deyo and free throws by LaPlume and Beland gave Attleboro a 22-11 lead.  Foxboro scored the next 5 points and the half ended 22-16, in favor of the Bombardiers.

Foxboro came out with renewed intensity in the third period and held Attleboro to 4 points, all from the free throw line.  The quarter ended with Foxboro taking over the lead, 30-26.

Emily Houle opened up the final stanza, hitting back to back 3’s, putting Attleboro in front.  Baskets by Deyo and Clifton gave the Bombardiers a 36-35 lead and 2 put backs by Runey extended that lead to 5 points. Foxboro was forced to foul and Houle and Runey made good on their free throws.  A shot from behind the arc was all Foxboro was able to manage and Attleboro came away with a 44-38 win!

Houle led the Bombardiers with 10 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.  Runey added 8 points and 6 rebounds.  Bri LaPlume was back on the court, after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.  She chipped in  6 points and 7 rebounds.    Deyo played a key role  in the win with 8 points and 7 rebounds. 

Once again the Bombardiers had success from the free throw line, hitting 14-17.

Attleboro will travel to Franklin on Friday for a 6:30 game.
