HOW IT HAPPENED
- Brockport opened the contest on a 7-3 run before a layup by Fiona Horan and a jumper from McKeyla Badilla Chaves tied the game at 7-7.
- The Golden Eagles responded with an 8-0 run to grab the early momentum heading into quarter two.
- Brockport continued its momentum into the second quarter with a dominant 26-8 performance in ten minutes. Jarvis led the Herons with four points in the second.
- After trading the early points to start the second half, William Smith applied pressure of their own forcing a 9-0 run for the Herons.
- First-year’s Jazzmyn Lewis and Amelia McCulley sparked the Heron offense, scoring William Smith’s last 10 points of the quarter to bring the Herons within 14 heading into the final 10 minutes.
- Brockport responded with a 20-point showing in the final quarter to close out the game on top allowing William Smith to just 12 points in the final 10 minutes. First-year’s Dani Krenzer and Giana Lobozzo combined for five of the Herons 12 points in the fourth, tallying their first career points for William Smith.
“We played a really strong Brockport team today,” said Head Coach Lindsay Sharman. “We were able to finally generate some offense in the second half and make a run, but unfortunately couldn’t finish the comeback. Once we clean up our turnovers and play 40 minutes of defense, we will be in great shape.”
The Herons will be back in action on Tuesday, Nov. 21, when they head to Rochester to take on the University of Rochester in a nonconference showdown. Action between the Herons and the Yellowjackets is set for 6 p.m. in the Louis Alexander Palestra.
