Week 7: Quiet week ends with win for Centaurs

It was a short week for the Woodstock Academy girls basketball team.

After having games come in bunches this season, the Centaurs had a relatively quiet week but it was a productive one.

They traveled to New Haven on Saturday and posted a 41-28 win over Amistad Academy.

The win raised the Centaurs record to 10-5 on the season.

They are currently 12th in the Class L state rankings.

Woodstock Academy didn’t seem bothered by the hour-plus bus ride to New Haven.

It got off the bus and jumped out to a 7-4 first quarter lead over the Wolves with sophomore Eva Monahan getting four of her team-high 12 points in the first eight minutes.

Monahan split her production right down the middle, getting six points in each half of play.

The Centaurs doubled up on that lead by the half, going up 17-11.

They followed that up with a 10-1 third quarter run to enjoy a 15-point lead going into the final quarter.

Sophomore Sophia Sarkis hit a pair of 3-pointers in the second half and finished with 11 points for Woodstock Academy.

Freshman Isabel D’Alleva-Bochain added seven.

Fatema Thomas led all scorers as she finished with 16 points for Amistad (1-16).

This week will go in similar fashion for the Centaurs.

They have only one game to be concerned with an it’s on the road at Norwich Free Academy on Thursday.

Woodstock Academy had best enjoy the rest.

The Centaurs finish up the regular season with four games in seven days beginning on Feb.7.
