Laurel falls to New Brighton
New Brighton (56) Vs. Laurel (45)
Feb 07, 2012
New Brighton pulled away in the second half for a Section 2-AA home verdict over Laurel.

The Lady Lions (7-5, 11-7) outscored the Lady Spartans (3-8, 7-14) in the final 16 minutes, 28-19.

“I thought the girls played hard,” Laurel coach Jessica Shevitz said. “We told them before the game to play like you’re down 10 points because it’s a difficult place to play. I’m proud of how they played.

“It was a very physical game and the girls are learning from their mistakes.”

Freshman Ellen Shaffer led the Lady Spartans with 19 points and 10 rebounds.

“Ellen played very well,” Shevitz said. “She’s starting to get more confident; she has natural movement.

“I keep telling her to be more physical and she’s learning how to do that. We’re working on her defense and she’s getting better. She really has some potential to be a really good ballplayer and she’s very coachable.”

Marisa Wallas was next with nine points and a team-best five assists for the guests.

Alexis Aspiotes netted a team-high 15 points for New Brighton.
