NORWALK- After starting the season with a respectable 2-1 record, the McMahon girls varsity basketball team has been on a 5 game losing straight losing their fifth straight in a match up against Stamford High Tuesday night at 5:30 pm in McMahon’s Kehoe-King Gymnasium.
When asked what happened to McMahon’s offense in the first half, starting junior point guard, Michelle Perea(‘19), said “I think it was decent, I mean we only scored 4 points in 16 minutes, (the entire first half) like that’s bizarre.” She went on to say “I know my team is capable of so much more and we have potential. We’re not the typical McMahon team we used to be but we didn’t execute and there were just rushed shots.”
McMahon was shut down in the first half being out scored 26-4 and scoring a total of zero points in the second quarter. Fortunately, the senators were able to turn it around in the second half. After the players talking to each other to figure out the problem without the coaches input, McMahon’s change in energy level was apparent. With a strong fourth quarter push, the Senators closed the gap but weren’t able to make a full come back falling short to the Black Nights 46-34.
“Towards the end of the third quarter, our energy level really got up and we were able to close the score a lot but we just didn’t have enough time.” -Tatiana Arias(‘18)
