Pembroke girls top Merrimack Valley
The Spartans held an 11-point lead at the end of three quarters, but MV began to play a press defense to force turnovers. But the Pride couldn’t convert turnovers into points, going cold from the floor and from the line, allowing Pembroke to hang on for the win.
“It’s character-building” said Pembroke coach Josh Goldstein. “We’ve been in this situation before, losing a big lead, and we’ve come out on top.”
Cassidy Huckins led MV with 19 points, and five 3-pointers.
