Caveney nets 1,000 point, Andover beats NA

NORTH ANDOVER — Devon Caveney scored the 1,000 point of her career last night one of the coolest ways possible.

She did it on a four-point play.

She was fouled while converting a 3-pointer for her 1,000, 1,001 and 1,002 points. The game broke for a few minutes so Caveney could celebrate with her coaches and teammates.

Then, she returned to sink point No. 1,003 on her foul shot.

Caveney scored 15 points (now has 1,008) and Angelice Gonzalez netted six of her 10 points in the final quarter to lead the Golden Warriors 45-42 over a North Andover team that was without its top scorer, Morgan Lumb.

“This was a great way to get the 1,000 point,” Caveney said, chuckling about her four-point play.

“I was really happy. That was the second time I ever got a four-point play. Once you make the 3, you have to make (the foul shot) to get the four points.”

Lumb, meanwhile, was on crutches because she sprained her ankle in North Andover’s victory over Dracut on Tuesday.

“It’s a different game when Morgan’s in definitely, but I think this was a good win and it will give us confidence because our next couple of games are really tough,” Caveney said.

North Andover coach Sue Breen said she certainly feels bad for Lumb.

There is not yet a timetable set for her return.

“She wants to play so much and she will be back, but I think the kids played hard and it was a battle,” Breen said.

“The whole game was just close and tight. It was a tough game. It was physical. Andover made plays.”

The Golden Warriors entered the fourth with a three-point lead.

Gonzalez did a fine job in the final period driving to the basket for three buckets, including one to increase Andover’s lead to 44-39 with 1:03 left.
