Kyierah Dempsey-Toney and Christina Midgette both scored double-doubles in the Lady Warriors’ losing effort to Mt. St. Mary’s, 51-45, on March 1.

The game was the quarter-final of the Blue Division in the Skyland Conference Tournament. a new concoction by the NJSIAA in the Age of COVID.

The Lady Warriors got off the blocks quickly, building as much as a 6-point lead in the first period, ending with a 1-point advantage, 13-12.

But dogged defense and some timely three-point shooting by the Lions erased that lead in the second period, with Mt. St. Mary’s leading 25-20 at the halftime buzzer.

Erica Jackson scored eight points, Morgan Jones scored five points, and Iyanna Cotton scored four points.
