At the end of the first quarter, Old Tappan led 13-11. OT's Emily Crevani can attack the basket with lightning fast speed. She weaves in and out of the defense and can finish strong with either hand. She had 13 points, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 2 rebounds.

Now that the 30-day wait requirement is over, Jaide Hinds-Clarke entered her first ever game for Westwood in the second quarter. She was the missing element this team needed. She adds height, incredible leaping ability, and speed. She dominated inside the paint, deflecting passes and shots. With 5:42 remaining in the second quarter Westwood had taken the lead, 18-15. Hinds-Clarke finished with 9 rebounds, 2 blocked shots, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 12 points. At the half time Westwood led 24-20.

Old Tappan's Ariana Chipolone is a great scorer. She can square up for jump shots and she can take the ball to the basket. She had 4 rebounds, 3 steals, and 13 points. At the end of the third quarter, Westwood had the lead, 36-32.

Westwood's Noelle Cobin knows when to cut to the basket. She makes smart decisions with the ball and is very athletic. After going into the half time with only 4 points and 1 steal, she came alive in the second half to finish with 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 15 points.

With 4:45 remaining in the fourth quarter Westwood led 44-35. Jess Potestivo anticipated well on defense and stole the ball 5 times. She did a good job of drawing the defense to her and passing off to open players on the block. In addition to the steals, she also had 4 rebounds, 6 assists, and 13 points.
