High school roundup: St. Joseph girls basketball tops Hampden Charter at home

Posted

PITTSFIELD — The St. Joseph girls basketball team rolled to a 51-33 win over Hampden Charter on Tuesday at home.

The Crusaders were led by Kacey Sondrini, who poured in a game-high 21 points. Cate Bean also added six points and eight rebounds to help St. Joe to a 2-1 record on the season.

Hampden Charter was led by Maddy Sheehan, who had 11 points.

With the game delayed by a half hour due to Hampden arriving late, St. Joe led just 12-9 after a quarter. The team picked it up in the second and went into halftime up 23-15, and used a strong second half to shut the door.

"In the second half, [we] really picked it up," St. Joe coach Pete Ellsworth said. "I think [we] were just flat and then had a great second half. They pressured, they played pressure defense in the second half and it paid off."

St. Joe is now off until the new year, when the team travels to Hampden Charter on Jan. 5.
