Foran plays six games in seven days, wins three

The Foran girls basketball team has played six games in a seven-day stretch.

Coach Bob Asmussen’s Lions went 3-3.

“I was proud of our team,” Asmussen said. “This has been a tough week making up for postponed games and the girls handled it well.”

Sam Young posted a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Foran to a 52-46 victory over North Haven. Mary Rodrigues had 13 points and Ava Deitelbaum 10 for the Lions, who nursed a 10-point halftime advantage to the SCC win.

“We played really aggressive defensive for good stretches of the game,” Asmussen said. “We received contributions throughout the team. Our two juniors, Mary Rodrigues and Sam Young, both stepped up for us and contributed career highs. They played strong defensively and rebounded very well. We made good decisions on offense and moved the ball around well, which led to eight 3-pointers. Ava Deitelbaum is a freshman and scored 10.”
