#10 Generals Fall on the Road
Watertown NY- The #10 ranked Herkimer Generals women’s basketball team traveled to take on #12 ranked Jefferson CC Cannoneer’s. The Generals jumped out ahead and controlled the game through the third quarter leading by 18 but in the last 15 minutes squandered the lead. The Cannoneer’s got hot at the end and outscored the Generals in the 4th quarter 32-16.
Herkimer was once again by Kapri Bradshaw (Uniondale, NY) who score 27 on the night. In addition, Bradshaw had 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals. Freshman forwards Jenna Faulkner (Otego, NY) and Nazjae Howard (Syracuse, NY) once again filled up the stat sheets for the Generals. Faulkner score 21 points had 14 rebound and 7 blocks while Howard had 7 points and 19 rebounds. Shooting guard Ajla Sejdic (Utica, NY) chipped in with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.
Head Coach Matt Hazzard noted “It was great to see that we came out and matched their energy at the start of the game. We built a nice lead and played great for most the game. Jefferson is a solid team and while it would’ve been nice to win a regional game on the road against a good team, we learned a lot as a unit. The stat lines were good, but they got hot at the right time!”
The Generals are back in action Saturday (11/12) when the travel to regional opponent Broome CC, for a 1 o’clock start.
