THE Mount Carmel School Knights defeated the Saipan Southern High School Manta Rays, 52-35 while the Marianas High School Dolphins grabbed two wins in a row in the 2014-2015 MISO Girls High School Basketball League “jamboree” at the Marianas High School Gym last Saturday.
Due to typhoon, all last week’s games were held in a “jamboree” on Saturday.
In the last few games of the “jamboree” the Lady Knights went against the Lady Mantas and came out victorious, 52-35.
They started with Jan Travilla and Karleen Reyes contributing a total of 15 points. Reyes had two shots from beyond the arc.
The Mantas struggled in the first half with only Serafina Nogoyawa getting through the defense to score points.
At the end of the first half the Knights secured a 20-9 lead.
The game started to pick up offensively during the second half as both teams started to score. Travilla continued to drain shots from the three point line while Tanika Taimanao came out hot and finished off the third quarter with three shots in a row.
The Mantas still had a fighting chance and showed no signs of giving up as Veronnie Babauta carried her shooting skills over to the second half to held Nogoyawa, but the Knights continued to attack and took the win 52-35.
The Lady Dolphins Varsity won twice with ease defeating the Lady Knights 53-39 and the Kagman High School Lady Ayuyus 52-7.
However, the Lady Ayuyus defeated MHS junior varsity, 25-23 and the SSHS earned one as well as they took down MHS freshmen, 43-20.
