St. Francis CYO Basketball Wins Prepare Them For Upcoming Weekend Road Trip
The CYO season resumed this weekend and it was business as usual for St. Francis. The Girls Pee Wee B remained undefeated in league play with a win over R/A. Kim Sluyk scored the first basket and totaled 4 points as Kayla Kilgallen also did the same. Emma Knox was high scorer, while Emma Michaels completed the scoring. Taylor Veigh and Renee Simos stood out for their all around play.
The Novice and Rookie girls also took on R/A. The Novices prevailed 25-7 on the offense of Deirdre McCool and Caitlin Byrne, and the defense of Therese Boyle and Samantha Scaccia.
The Rookies rolled 34-19.
The Bantams won easily against Our Lady of Grace. Kristin Henschel, Jesse Boland, and Jen O'Hara paced the team. The Intermediates lost another tough one 42-32 to St. Stans. Annette Scotto, Kristin Ferrandino, and Danielle Farragher were the bright spots on offense, while Taylor Conroy, Vanessa Ramos, and Rachel Gersh keyed the defense.
The Boys Subnovice A traveled to Our Lady of Grace and kept up their strong play, highlighted by baskets from Ryan Olsen, Eoin Reen, and Ethan Ruiz. The Subnovice B's took on Nativity and Ryan Moran tossed in 4 while Noah Nicholson, Matt DeCrescenzo, Thomas Glynn, and Frank McVeigh all scored. James Pisano and Christian Apice were the defensive stars.
The Pee Wee A's beat OLPH as Chris Ray, Jimmy Howard, and Ray Marten spearheaded the offense. Max Frankel, Tommy Lynch, and Kevin McDonagh sparked the defense.
The Pee Wee B's won at St. Margaret. Tough defense and balanced scoring led by Bard Featherston, Thomas Baldrian, Joseph Brown, Anthony Scotto, and John Whelan were the winning factors. The Novice boys overcame a slow start to win 26-14 at St. Thomas More. Ryan Schonfeld was the Snickers player of the game for his 6 points and excellent defense, particularly on the press.
The Bantam win over St. Virgilius was highlighted by Kevin Caputo's return to action. Forced into action when much of the team had to leave for a swim meet, Kevin drained a 3 pointer the first time he touched the ball after having his cast removed the previous day.
The Intermediates won handily at Holy Child.
The teams hit the road this weekend with no games at SFDS, except for some possible reschedules. Coaches check you emails for possible Saturday games.
