The St. Benedict Bengals girls basketball team put together yet another win Thursday.
The Bengals (11-4) defeated the Francis Parker Colonels 58-36 at St. Benedict in a non-conference matchup. The Bengals broke things open in the second half, outscoring the Colonels 15-3 in the fourth quarter. Senior center Annie Tang knew her team had to come together late in the game after taking only a five point lead into the locker room at halftime.
“In the later half of the second quarter, we kind of fell apart and we weren’t playing as a team,” she said. “Our coaches talked to us at halftime and told us that we need to stick together and play as a team, that’s what’s going to win games. We came together better in the second half to get the win.”
Tang notched 15 points for the Bengals, while senior guard Alexis Genge led the team with 16. Each scored six points in the Bengals’ big fourth quarter.
Only six games remain for the Bengals in this regular season, including just one more home game, and Tang knows that her team can keep things up during the final stretch before the Girls Catholic Athletic Conference tournament begins.
“It’s my senior year, so I definitely want to get far and win a regional,” Tang said. “I definitely want to win our last home game, and just keep doing the best that we can for the rest of the season.”
The Bengals are back in action Saturday as they head to Luther North to take on the Wildcats.
