Liverpool girls basketball goes 3-1

This time, though, it was the Warriors making the comeback as Zywicki again proved spectacular. Topping her Proctor total, Zywicki finished with 34 points as the Warriors forged a 63-63 tie, then outscored WG 9-7 in the four-minute extra period. Price and Nina Tassone each finished with 14 points as, for the Wildcats, Katie Kolinski (22 points) and Melissa Fumano (17 points) led the way.

Before all this, the Warriors nearly squandered a big early lead at Nottingham last Tuesday night before hanging on to beat the Bulldogs 46-43.

Hot early shooting (just like the F-M game) put Liverpool up 18-7, but just as quickly the Warriors cooled off, giving Nottingham all kinds of time to rally.

It was 25-19 by halftime, and for the rest of the game the Warriors had to clamp down on defense to make sure the Bulldogs didn't make it all the way back.

Part of the problem was seeing Tassone go without a field goal, as both her points came at the free-throw line. That put more pressure on Zywicki, but she stepped up and finished with 19 points, while Circillo contributed 13 points. Price helped, too, earning nine points.

Two nights later, the Warriors hosted Central Square and dominated all the way through a 59-25 victory over the Red Hawks.

From the time it started 15-2, Liverpool dictated the game's entire course. Zywicki again led the way, picking up 13 points as Ciricillo finished with nine points. Chloe Buccina stepped up, joining Tassone with seven points as Allie Melle added six points.

Liverpool emerged from this eventful and busy stretch at 7-3 for the season. The Warriors have to go through all of it again this week with rematches against both West Genesee and Utica Proctor.
