FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Flyers battled the Wellesley Raiders on Tuesday night, January 29.
While the Flyers showed fantastic effort, the Raider attack was too much for them, and they ultimately fell short by a final score of 45-33.
The Raiders opened the game on a 14-0 run, and never surrendered the lead.
The Flyers were able to go on a late run, cutting the lead to 10 late in the 4th quarter, but were not able to finish the comeback.
The main highlight of the game for Framingham was the stellar defense played by freshman Marykate Robinson, holding her matchup to just 2 points for the game.
Another standout was freshman Nicole Moran, who heated up in the second half on her way to leading the Flyers with 15 points, all by way of three point shots.
Head coach Kristen Audet-Fucarile was pleased with the team’s overall performance despite the loss, calling them “a group of fighters.”
She also was very happy with the way her team’s defense played overall.
“Wellesley has a few very good players in their starting lineup, and I really think we made everyone on their team work for their points,” she said. “I thought we did a great job challenging Wellesley to score throughout the whole game.”
“A loss last night in the record books but a win for our program,” Tweeted the coach Wednesday morning. “Our defense kept us in the game until the very end against Wellesley, one of the top teams in the Bay State Conference.”
The Flyers drop to 6-10 on the season, and look to bounce back on Thursday.
