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.
