Warriors 4-15, Now Preparing for Next Season
The Windsor high school girls varsity basketball team started the year on a positive note but soon found themselves losing a series of games.Although the team is talented winning became a struggle against aggressive opponents.
In the last half of the regular season they did not play with any intensity and appeared to quickly panic when they were trailing in close contests.With a record of 4-15 they did not qualify for the state tournament and now the coach is focusing on the younger players giving them more playing time.
Young players Crystal Simpson, Ayanna McDougald are getting more minutes in preparation for the 2014 season. A few fans believe that the girls had a difficult time adapting to the coaching style of Dr George Curry and became confused with their individual roles.
On Thursday, they lost their senior night game to the East Hartford Hornets 56-59. The Warrior girls led 28-27 at half time in this closely contested game and appeared to be matching their opponents physically. In the third quarter they took an 8 point lead but quickly gave back four with two careless turn overs. In the fourth quarter Windsor raced to a seven point lead but poor defense allowed East Hartford back in the game.
With less than a minute left their opponents took the lead 52-53 and the girls had difficulty recovering. Molly Curry last effort to tie the game with 2.5 second left hit high on the back board and missed the rim. Outstanding players for Windsor were Molly Curry with 20 points,Rose Powell had 14, Nyah Charles, Sydnee, Over and Elisha Pertillar all had 6 points. The girls will play Weaver on Saturday.
