Fulton edged the New Haven basketball Lady Shamrocks Friday to claim the Montgomery County Tournament consolation championship, 39-38.
The Lady Shamrocks (2-3) led 13-11 after one quarter, but trailed 24-18 at the half. Fulton led 30-24 after three quarters.
“We turned the ball over way too many times,” New Haven Head Coach Doug Peirick said. “Even though we did that we still had a chance to win.”
Montgomery County’s scorekeeper had New Haven down for 20 turnovers in the game.
New Haven was paced by Makenzie Munsinger, who netted 20 points while scoring in each quarter.
“Makenzie Munsinger had a really good game in the scoring column and McKenzie Overschmidt led the team in rebounding with 11,” Peirick said.
Overschmidt also had 11 points in the game.
New Haven’s other scorers were Claire Meyer, Megan Holtmeyer and Hannah Rethemeyer with two points apiece and Alexis Sidwell with one point.
Fulton was paced by Haden Trowbridge, who had 10 points.
Carly Fisher scored eight points while Mattie Arnold netted seven and Kayanna Gaines ended with six. Alyssa Deuel scored five points, Sydney Hedgpath added two and Olivia Gowin scored one point.
New Haven returned to action Monday at Washington.
“We’ve got to keep working at getting better and correcting our mistakes in practice and hopefully that will carry over into games,” Peirick said.
