It was an 18-point game when the Woodstock and Windsor girls faced off earlier in the season, and despite much different lineups Friday night due to illness and injury, the result was eerily similar.
Woodstock headed into the contest hopeful for a closer meeting than the last time the teams’ met, especially knowing Windsor was shorthanded with two started out due to illness.
But despite a strong start from the home team that saw the Wasps down by 6 after one and 9 at halftime, it was the visiting Yellow Jackets who prevailed in the end to the tune of a 57-39 victory.
And it was Ashleay Wilcox who looked like she was in mid season form despite playing in just her second game back from a knee injury, finishing with a team high 15 points. Anika Abrahamsen came up big for Windsor in the pain with an impressive 12 point effort, while Erica Gray added 12 with help from this 3-pointer. Madison Schulz led Woodstock with a gutsy 12 points, followed by Mariah Luce and Loretta Blakeney with eight apiece for the Wasps.
Mike Pezone spoke with both Wilcox and Windsor coach Bruce Mackay after the game to ask them what clicked despite not having a pair of key players.
Windsor will try and make it two wins in a row Tuesday when they host Newport, and Woodstock will welcome Leland & Gray to town on Wednesday.
