Girls’ Basketball Survives at Ross

February 4, 2011

Natalie Istrati (shown here vs. Shelter Island) led the way for the Bears tonight

The girls basketball team survived a close battle at the Ross School tonight, winning 48-41 to improve to 7-1 in the league.  After beating the Cosmos 56-31 a little over a week ago, the Bears met a determined team that never capitulated.  After the Brook won a 10-8 opening frame, they pushed the lead to 6 by halftime.  A 16-12 3rd quarter gave the blue and white control of the game and they did enough in the final quarter to pull out the win.  Natalie Istrati led all scorers with 19 points and completed the double-double with 13 rebounds.  The rest of the scoring was well balanced between Jess Winston (9 points/5 assists), Ariana Odom (8 points), Brannon Burke (6 points/20 rebounds), Danielle Pappas (4 points) and Tadiawa Madenga (2 points).  The Bears improve to 7-1 in the league and with Pierson/Bridgehampton’s loss at Mercy last night they take sole possession of 1st place in League VIII.  There next matchup is at home vs. Pierson/Bridgehampton Tuesday 2/8 @ 4:30pm.
