Coach Traversi substituted freely during the final stanza  and baskets by LaPlume, Emma Vlashi, free throws by Sarah Deyo and a 3 at the buzzer by Houle capped off the Bombardier victory.

Sophomore Emily Houle led the victors with 18 points and 10 rebounds, in addition to shooting 60% from behind the arc!  Kerri Beland contributed 8 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists.  Adding to the Bombardier victory was Bri LaPlume, once again a force inside, pulling down 13 rebounds, handing out 5 assists and adding 6 points.  Beth Clifton had 6 offensive boards and 6 points.  Attleboro was once again successful at the free throw line, shooting 12-16.
