Basketball, Girls: Thirds loses to Frontier

Event Details

Deerfield’s Big Green were no match for the Frontier Red Hawks in today’s home match up.  While Deerfield ended the first quarter behind by only 3 points, Frontier outscored DA by 14 points in the second quarter to take a 15-32 lead at the half.  Aggressive defense by Deerfield put some players in foul trouble, and landed Frontier at the free throw line fifteen times while Deerfield only had three attempts at the charity stripe.  Ella Mbanefo ’22 led Deerfield in scoring with 10 points, while Elena Lu ’22 chipped in 8 points.  All ten players on Frontier’s team posted points on the scoreboard in their 23-47 victory.  The girls return to the court on the road against NMH next Wednesday at 1:45 PM.
