Road Warriors: Merrimack women win 3rd straight

Merrimack: Men rally, but drop second straight

ORANGEBURG, NY — Behind a spread out scoring attack that saw four Warriors score in double figures, the Merrimack women’s basketball team picked up a 30-point victory over Nyack yesterday afternoon, 80-50. With the win, Merrimack improves to 3-0 overall including 1-0 in the Northeast-10 Conference with all three wins coming on the road.

“Nyack came out hard and really tested us in the first half but we played much more disciplined in the second half,” said head coach Monique LeBlanc. “It was great to have all players contribute today. Everyone played double digit minutes and we were really able to mix the lineups up.”

Merrimack (3-0, 1-0 NE-10) will stay on the road Tuesday as they will head to #2 Bentley for a conference showdown.

The Warriors received scoring from ten different players on Saturday including Chloe Rothman who led Merrimack with 14 points and also grabbed five rebounds and dished out five assists.

Jaclyn Lyons scored a season-high 12 points in the win as she went 5 of 11 from the floor and dished out four assists. Sophomore Melissa Miller of North Andover scored a career-high 12 points in 12 minutes of action for the Warriors. Kelly Schatzlein finished off an impressive game with 10 points and a game-high nine rebounds.

Lyons opened the scoring for the Warriors as she drilled a three pointer off of a nice pass from Rothman 20 seconds into the game. The two teams went back and forth over the next three minutes as the score was tied 5-5.

The Warriors broke the game open over the next five minutes as they used a 14-2 run to extend their lead to 12 points as Madison Ward made a driving layup in the lane.

For the game, Merrimack shot 39 percent from the floor while Nyack was held to 34 percent. The Warriors drilled eight three pointers, four in each half, and went 18-26 from the free throw line in the big win. The Warriors outrebounded Nyack 55-36.
