Londonderry Girls’ Basketball Double Up Blue Devils

The Londonderry High School Girls’ Basketball team tallied its sixth consecutive win last week, and have scored over 60-points in each of those victories.
The win also kept the Lady Lancers on top of the Division I standings with the Bedford Bulldogs (8-0) and the Pinkerton Academy Astros (7-0).

In the third quarter, LHS allowed 10-points, but scored 17 to widen their lead.
In the fourth, with a number of starters out, Londonderry still managed a 10-8 difference for the lopsided 64-31 victory.
Freshman guard, Gemma Murray, was the top point-getter for the Lancers, scoring in every quarter. Murray had a total of 21-point with three, three-poiners.
Sophomore forward, Samantha Sullivan, came into the game scoring three, three-pointers in the first quarter and was fouled on her way to the basket throughout the second and third. She had five of eight successful foul shots and finished with 16-points.
Sophomore guard, Brooke Eacrett, had 12-points in the victory with two, three-pointers and three baskets.
