The EG Girls Basketball team lost 50-44 to Chariho last Monday (2/20/23), ending their D2 league playoff dreams.
“It was a great game,” said Coach Dave Maccarone. “It was the best defense we played this year. But Chariho is tough for us – they are a little bigger and they have more players who can score.”
EG’s Alex Mega did her part, scoring 26 points for the Avengers.
Maccarone said the team has had the most regular season and league wins of the past four years. Because of that, they made the state tournament, ranked 14th out of 18 total teams.
The Avengers will play 3rd ranked La Salle on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Because of its higher ranking, La Salle gets home court advantage.
The lady Avengers are playing in the quarter final game of the state championships on Wed. 3/1 at 7 pm. The game is at La Salle. We need a good turnout for this one. This is a game they can win. Let me see your face in the stands. You’re on candid camera.
