Marissa Bornholdt had another good game, scoring 11, while pulling down six rebounds and gathering in three steals. Cheyenne Losey had a solid game with six points, six rebounds, four steals and four assists. Lizzie Tart, who has been a stalwart all season, was injured in the game and did not score. Junior Haley Colton came up with a half-dozen points and four assists, another fine floor game for her. Jamie Thompson rounded out the Knight scoring with a bucket and two points.
"We were ahead most of the second half, but Lourdes went on a run and we couldn't quite recover," said coach Jill Thalmann. "We took a big blow when Lizzie Tart was injured towards the beginning of the second half. It was a close game to the end, but Lourdes has much more playoff experience and it showed Thursday night."
In the last regular season game, the gals lost to Plainview-Elgin-Millville, 62-51. Cheyenne Losey ended the regular season with a bang, scoring 16 points and pulling down 13 rebounds. Marissa Bornholdt was six for seven from the field and two for two from the line, turning in a fine 14 point performance. Melinda Woods and Lizzie Tart each had six points in the season finale. Haley Colton had a team high five assists.
Melinda Woods had the lone three-pointer for the Knights, as the team hit just one of 12 from long range.
The gals finished the regular season at .500, 13-13, and were also .500 in the Three Rivers Conference, at 10-10. Overall, the gals finished the season with a 13-14 record.
