GIRLS BASKETBALL BOOKS TRIP TO THE SEMI-FINALS

No. 7 Burlington 51, No. 2 Essex 46

B: Ella Decelles 24 points, 7 rebounds. Cassie Beste 11 points, 7 assists. Libby Westbrook 8 points, 8 rebounds. Kale Tornwini 12 rebounds, 3 blocks.

E: Paige Winter 20 points. Emilyrose Mercier  7 points.

Note: Losing in the quarterfinals last year and then dropping the 2021 season opener, Burlington left Essex this time for a measure of revenge, holding on in the upset victory. The Seahorses led 36-26 through three quarters, and survived an Essex run with Decelles foul shots in final minute.
