CIVIC MEMORIAL 67, JERSEY 37: The “hometown” Civic Memorial Lady Eagles won a decisive 67-37 victory over the Jersey Lady Panthers on Thursday night. Jersey played well but the Lady Eagles proved too much for them with their quick hands and impressive shooting.

Todd Hannaford, Athletic Director for Civic Memorial, said, “We’ve got a high energy team, shoot the ball well, run the floor really well and play really, really tough defense. We’re not overly tall…but we’re quick.”

Yes. Yes. They are quick. Quick enough to jump to an early 19-point lead and never look back with scores at the quarters of 27-8, 47-17 and 59-27. The Lady Panthers played the Eagles tough in the final quarter but it was too late.
