Skipjack women wear down Rockville
Thomas scores 19 as Chesapeake notches second hoop victory
ROCKVILLE With a seven-player roster, Chesapeake College’s women’s basketball team isn’t accustomed to having a numerical advantage.
That, however, was a key to the Skipjacks’ 64-46 win over host Montgomery College Rockville Tuesday night. Rockville led at the half and stayed close until the final minutes, when the foul-plagued Knights were reduced to four players.
"It was a close game up until that point," said Chesapeake head coach Lowell Showell, who indicated he was pleased with his squad’s intensity. "The effort was very good it’s been good all season."
Rockville stayed close for so long thanks in large part to Franchaze Waters, who scored 14 of her game-high 21 points in the first half as Rockville took a 26-24 lead.
"We couldn’t stop her in the first half," said Shaw.
Sherrie Thomas led a balanced Chesapeake attack with 19 points. Yaasmiyn Finlayson and Chanae DeShields each added 14 points.
The Skipjacks play again Saturday at 1 p.m. at Allegany College of Maryland.
