Katie Polimeno (2pts) and Madison Pierce (4pts) lead the way with key steals and strong rebounding. Ashley Demers (2pts) was great at finding the open girl and on several occasions stopping the Eagles drive.

Third period Samira Cook made her presence know with great defensive moves and Kendal Von Kahle put in 2pts to add to the lead.

The 4th period with the Waves leading sealed the deal with Lexi and Katie Polimeno stealing the ball and taking it to the hoop. Darielle Wilson (2pts) was strong down low grabbing key rebounds and Izabel Moriera (2pts) was great at protecting the key.
The Waves had tremendous all around team plays with scoring coming from all the members and unselfish passing, which led to their victory.

Great season and two great teams ending the TGBL year with an exciting finish.
