It was a battle of Patriot League division leaders on Friday night in Quincy and the Lady Dragons (10-2) had little success unseating the Presidents, as they never recovered from a first-period shooting barrage and dropped a 59-40 decision to the Fisher Division leaders.
Attacking Duxburyâ€™s zone defense with a plethora of three-point bombs (6) in the first quarter, Quincy (11-2) grabbed a 24-11 lead after eight minutes that made a comeback, not out of the question, but highly unlikely.
By halftime the lead had grown to 35-19, as junior center Kiley McDonald was on her way to an impressive night for the hosts with 18 points and 16 rebounds, while holding Duxburyâ€™s Michaela North to 16 points.
McDonald got plenty of offensive help from her teammates, while Devon Tsinzo was the next high scorer for Duxbury with 8 points.
It is a busy week for the Lady Dragons as they hosted New Bedford on Monday night and Pembroke on Tuesday, before traveling to Kingston on Friday night to take on Silver Lake.
