On Sunday the Lady Cannoneers took the floor for the second time in the last 5 days. This time they would match up with Region 3 foe Fulton-Montgomery Community College. Both teams would battle back and forth exchanging leads and 6 point deficits respectively through the first quarter. Both teams struggle from the perimeter, and saw most of their points coming from the painted area. The sophomore trio of Crosby, Eyles, and Raven continued their consistent play throughout the first half keeping the game within striking distance. Down by 10 at the half Jefferson would mount its comeback in the second half. After a couple quick baskets by Fulton the Lady Cannoneers would kick it into second gear. Jefferson would hold Fulton scoreless for 4 minutes as they cut their 12 point deficit to 2 points nearing the end of the third quarter. The fourth quarter much like the first quarter was a back and forth battle down to the 2 minute mark. Jefferson would take the lead at the 2:27 mark behind a layup from Raven. They wouldn't relinquish the lead the rest of the way behind stellar free throw shooting, and strong ball handling down the stretch. Chelsey Raven led the offensive charge totaling 23 points, and 12 rebounds on the day. Alyson Crosby tallied 9 points, and 17 rebounds, while Eyles contributed 12 points. Freshman Bailey Zicari, Isabella Soluri, and Mattilynne Hough played huge minutes, and all made key plays down the stretch in the comeback win for the Lady Cannoneers. Jefferson will next play Tompkins-Cortland Community College on Tuesday night at home!
