Feehan’s Lauren Donahue opened the scoring with a three point shot from behind the arc and the Shamrocks were never to relinquish the lead.  

Attleboro’s Emily Houle put the Bombardiers on the scoreboard, with a three point shot.  Baskets by Kerri Beland and Bri LaPlume knotted the score at 7 all.  The Shamrocks scored the next 14 points and Attleboro was only able to manage one basket, by Beland.  The first quarter ended, 21-9.

Attleboro’s Beland hit 1 of  2 free throws to open the second quarter, followed by  2 from the charity stripe by LaPlume.  Attleboro attempted to keep pace with the Feehan scoring.  6 points by Beland, 3 by Sarah Deyo and a 3 by Houle, ended the half, 35-24.

Houle opened the second half scoring but the girls in blue could only manage 10 points in that 8 minute segment and fell behind 54-34.

In the final quarter Attleboro’s Beth Clifton got the girls in blue on the scoreboard first, with a put back.  Beland followed with a 3, before scores by Feehan’s Manis and Donahue gave the Shamrocks a 58-39 lead.  Both teams found themselves in foul trouble but Attleboro was unable to match the depth of the Feehan bench.  A 3 by Houle closed out the game with Feehan earning an 18 point victory.

Beland led the Bombardiers with 18 points, followed by Houle, with 13.  Once again LaPlume was a force on the boards, pulling down 7 rebounds.

Attleboro now stands at 2-3 and 1-2 in league play.  They will travel to Dartmouth on Monday for a 2:00 non league game.
