The girls varsity basketball team traveled to Deerfield Academy on Saturday, February 9, and defeated the Doors 63-43, for the team's third straight win.
The first half of the game was fast-paced and saw Deerfield get the better of the play. Loomis struggled to connect on offense, but made it to half time trailing Deerfield by only eight points.
A different group of Pelicans took the floor in the second half and immediately put the Big Green on its heels. Loomis overwhelmed its opponent defensively, causing a flurry of turnovers, and attacked with confidence and urgency, putting away a storm of buckets.
Once the Pelicans took the lead, they kept scoring, widening their lead, and making it increasingly difficult for Deerfield to rebound for the win.
Next up, Loomis will travel to Suffield Academy on Wednesday, February 13, for a game at 3 p.m.
