That was costly, since M-E already had a 33-12 lead by halftime, and it put the Warriors in permanent catch-up mode. It didn’t help that Windhausen was shut down, held to a single field goal after her Central Square effort. Geyer led with nine points, while Natalie Parkins had five points.
Liverpool would bounce back in Saturday’s consolation game, though, edging Vestal 43-42 in a contest where neither side could make any sustained run and it proved suspenseful right to the final seconds.
Windhausen stayed on the floor this time and got a double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds. More importantly, she received some help from Dalton, who earned 11 rebounds to go with her eight points. Drew Dufrane finished with seven points.
Though it doesn’t have any league games this week, Liverpool gets a test Wednesday when it hosts Marcellus, who is 6-1 following its victory in the Mexico Holiday Tournament.
