Quiet Fourth Quarter Drops Sting

Quiet Fourth Quarter Drops Sting

The Seneca Sting fell to the George Brown Huskies 74-61 on Tuesday night.

The Sting started the game quickly, jumping out to a 7-1 lead less than three minutes into the game. A pair of free throws by Chelsea Ramsay extended the lead to 12-4, the Sting's largest of the game. The Sting would go on to hold a seven point lead at the end of the first quarter 20-13.

The Huskies bounced back in the second quarter, holding the Sting to twelve points while cutting the Sting lead to just one, trailing 32-31 at halftime.

An evenly played third quarter saw the Huskies take the lead by two points as both teams exploded for more than twenty points in the quarter. The Huskies had led by as many as seven (51-44) before a late Sting run closed the gap. At the conclusion of the third quarter,  Ramsay stole the ball, dove for it before it went out of bounds and found a wide open Kelly McIlroy who was unguarded under the net. The basket with 1.7 seconds left pulled the Sting within two points, heading into the fourth quarter down 56-54.

The fourth quarter saw the Sting shooting go cold while the Huskies increased their defensive pressure. The Sting scored just seven points in the quarter, six of which came in the final minute as the home team fell by thirteen.

Tiffany McNeil led the Sting with 15 points on 6-of-19 shooting as well as a trio of steals. Brianna-mae Clough added 11 points along with 8 rebounds and Laetitia Siala finished with 10 rebounds.

Tianna Sullivan topped the Huskies with 18 points to go along with 8 rebounds. Zae Sellers added 17 points and Coco Sauve contributed 14 points and 13 rebounds.
