Belchertown Girls Edge Drury SportsPrint Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Gina Camerota scored 14 points, and Jessa Troy added 13 Thursday to lead the Belchertown girls basketball team to a 43-41 win over Drury.
“We lost the game in the third quarter and from the free throw line,” Drury coach Ian Downey said. “You can’t expect to win close games when you go 6-for-17 from the free throw line. We struggled to score in the third, which got them their lead.
“We were up 41-40 but we gave up an offensive rebound off of a free throw. Avery Klingersmith made a tough shot but If we secure that rebound, I think we win the game.”
Kayla McGrath scored 14 points, and Brooke Bishop added nine for the Blue Devils.
“The one thing I was extremely proud of was how hard we kept fighting after losing Kayla to an injury with 5:30 left to play and down 4,” Downey said. “We could have folded, but we rallied to eventually take the lead. After losing the lead, we had a few opportunities with the ball to take the lead or tie it up in the last minute but we just couldn’t get any good looks.”
Drury (7-4) goes to Agawam on Friday.
