The Lady Knights traveled to Marlington for a tough match up against a 10-2 Marlington Dukes team. The game would start out slow offensively where the first bucket wouldn’t be scored until midway through the first quarter. Aquinas would gram an early 10-8 at the end of the first quarter.

Strong defense has been the key to the Knights early success and the 2nd quarter would be no different. Aquinas would outscore the Dukes 11-2 in the quarter, paced by 5 steals and easy buckets to get the momentum going. Addison Mucci would knock down 2 three pointers to push the lead to 21-10 at halftime.

The third quarter started off strong and would find the Knights up 15 before Marlington would go on a 12-2 run to get back in the game. When the pressure turned up, Aquinas would settle down in the 4th and execute offensively leading to important points down the stretch.

The Knights would be led in scoring by Hayley Smith and Erica Warren’s 12 points, and Addison Mucci’s 11. Aquinas will be back in action Wednesday evening as they travel to Warren JFK.
