Feb. 2: Shoreham-Wading River 47, Center Moriches 20

Shoreham-Wading River (11-6) came up with a victory one game after losing to first-place Mt. Sinai. They’ll continue to try to convince the seeding committee to give them a higher seed once the playoff rolls around. Ashley Bell led all scorers with 16 points and Kady Keehan added another 12. After scoring 15 points against Mt. Sinai, Juliana Mahan only scored eight against Center Moriches, mostly because of being rested as the game quickly became a blowout after the second quarter. The Wildcats only gave up a maximum of six points in the second and fourth quarters as defense reigned supreme. The Wildcats have three games left on the schedule: Feb. 9 against John Glenn at 5:15 p.m., Feb. 13 at Hampton Bays at 6:45 p.m. and Feb. 15 against Southampton at 4:30 p.m.
