On Monday The 11th seeded 10 and 10 Hopkinton Hillers girls took on #6th seeded Wayland in the Girls Central Division 2 Sectionals. The Hillers led 16 to 10 after the 1st quarter of action. Lauren Cho dropped 9 points in the 1st frame but the Wayland offense came alive in the 2nd quarter and early foul trouble led to 9 points off of free throws for the Warriors. Wayland outscored Hopkinton in the 2nd 26 to 6 and led at the half 36 to 22.
The 3rd Quarter was more back and forth but Wayland kept pace with Hopkinton and outscored them 13 to 12. It was a 49-34 Wayland lead heading into the 4th and despite a couple of Kiki Fossbender field goals, Wayland was able to maintain and took the game 57 to 45.
In the game Kiki Fossbender put up 15 points while Lauren Cho had a team high 18. It was a great effort by the Lady Hillers but they will end their season with a record of 10 wins and 11 losses.
Wayland advanced to the quarter finals and fell to Medfield in a close one 56 to 51. Congratulations to Head Coach Mike Greco and the girls on a tremendous season.
