Souhegan girls run past Pembroke
The Sabers improved to 8-1 while Pembroke fell to 7-3.
Souhegan was led by Devon Hickey with 11 points. Camden Formby-Lavertu had 10 and Mickenzie Larivee added 9.
The Sabers led 11-8 after one quarter, but in the second Souhegan increased its defensive pressure on Pembroke in the backcourt. The result: turnovers converted into points for Souhegan and the big run.
Mike Heaney, in his first year as Souhegan’s girls coach, said that the transition game is only just starting to click for them.
The Spartans got it to within five again at 31-26 thanks to a Seidner 3-pointer, but Souhegan’s Jaime King responded with a pair of 3’s of her own. “After I hit the second 3, I knew we had control of the game,” said King. Her points set off a 14-7 Souhegan run to seal the game.
