The Warriors get 4 scores in double digits and Meghan Brown scores a
game high 17 for the Lancers.
As successful as the game was for the Medfield Warriors, it was just as frustrating for the Norton Lancers. After keeping the score to within 3 almost midway though the second quarter, the Lancers fell apart as the Warriors beat the Lancers 68-20 in the first game of the season. Early signs in the first quarter indicated a defensive struggle, as both teams were hurting for points. With both teams tightening up on defense, it was going to take an extra strong offensive effort to win the game, and Medfield couldn’t get it early on. “That first quarter obviously a little frustrating for us. We need to play a lot better than that. We had looks that we should have been making that we weren't making,” said Medfield head coach Mark Nickerson. …
