New London 70, Xavier 50
The game was tied at 25 going into halftime, but New London emerged out of the locker room on fire, going on an 11-2 run in the opening minutes of the second half. New London’s leading scorer on the season, Leah Porath, scored 9 points in a row at one point during the opening minutes of the second half. Porath would go on to score 20 in the second half alone, and finished with a career high 29 points on the night. Head coach Troy Krause says that’s just the type of player she is.
“This is her fourth year on varsity and how Leah goes, we go,” said Krause on his team’s leading scorer. “Leah definitely is our key and all teams know that, but she’s a scorer. She can go inside, she can go outside, she’s so strong with the basketball. We feed off of her and she’s our leader. I think our intensity went up with her intensity in the second half.”
Xavier was able to hang tough, but ultimately didn’t have an answer for Porath, as she was also able to opening scoring for her teammates. Kate Christian finished with 16 points, and Kali Rohan added 10 to reach double figures.
New London didn’t play their cleanest game in the first half. Xavier was able to force the Bulldogs into mistakes, which resulted in points for the Hawks. Coach Krause said it came down to a lack of execution, which they eventually corrected.
“We got ourselves in foul trouble, we had some combinations that were playing in the game that don’t necessarily play a lot together and you could see that,” Krause said, analyzing his team’s first half performance. “The pace of the game was slowed down by our fouling and getting ourselves into trouble, so we just talked about taking care of our own stuff first, running the gameplan, and then maybe staying out of some foul trouble and maybe getting the pace of the game going. We thought we could wear them down and I think we did that.”
It’s hard to argue coach Krause’s assessment, as the Bulldogs outscored the Hawks by 20 in the second half, proving to be too much to handle. New London moves to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the Bay, as the come away with their second conference win in as many games. They’re next in action next Tuesday against Winneconne.
