WHITE PLAINS — The Crusaders' undefeated varsity girls basketball season came to an end last Tuesday, March 7, as they took on the defending state champions Pride of Ossining at White Plains High School.

The Crusaders offense got off to a slow start and was only able to generate four points in the first quarter. However, their defense was able to slow the explosive Pride offense and held the team to only 10 points.

In the second quarter the Crusaders finally got their offense on track and scored 19 points and cut the Pride’s lead down to four points. Maya Bernsley scored eight and Brianna DeLeo six in the quarter, both knocking down two three-point shots apiece to help the Crusaders get back into the game.

The 27-23 half time score was as close as the Crusaders were going get, though.

Ossining's star player, the UConn-bound Andra Espinoza-Hunter, came out after half time and scored 10 of her game-high 31 points as the Pride took a 14-point, 46-32 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Willow Duffell scored six of her 16 points in the fourth quarter in the Crusaders' comeback attempt but the Pride of Ossining proved to be to much and pulled away for a 60-44 victory.

The Crusaders' loss brings their season record to remarkable 23-1.
