The Terriers, who fell behind 17-6 in the opening quarter, got a team-high nine points from Molly Kelly. Emma Lawrence and Hannah Kelly finished with eight points and 10 rebounds each.

"Freshman Abbe Cravinho did another superb job filling in for the injured Keri Ticino," noted coach Goodhue. "My girls played hard."

BRATTLEBORO >> With the score knotted at 47-47, the Colonels used a Hailey Derosia layup and two freebies from Morgan Derosia to pull away in the final 30 seconds.

Anika Helmke and Addie McLaughlin each scored seven points in the first quarter to power Monument to a 16-7 lead. The visitors would later take a 35-29 advantage into the fourth, but the purple and white exploded for 22 points over the final eight minutes to prevail.

Gabby Carpenter had a double-double (16 points, 16 rebounds) to lead the victors. Devin Millerick followed with 15 points and five steals, and Kelsea McAuliffe contributed with 11 points and two takeaways.
