Westwood is on a roll. Fueled by their desire to win for their injured senior point guard, Jess Potestivo, they are playing better than ever before. Jaide Hinds-Clarke and Samantha McClutchy are two major contributors. Hinds-Clarke has great velocity. She can jump higher than most centers and runs as fast as most point guards. She had 16 rebounds, 4 blocked shots, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 14 points. This included a three-point shot from the corner. McClutchy has stepped up in a big way now that Westwood's starting point guard is unable to play. She works hard to get the ball inside. She had 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 blocked shot, and 18 points.

At the end of the first quarter, Westwood led 12-8.

Pascack Hills' Brianna Musco is an incredible athlete. She is fast, can push the ball up the court, can play pressure man-to-man defense, and can weave her way through the defense to score. She ended with 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 14 points.

At the end of the third quarter, Westwood led 36-28. Pascack Hills' Taylor Hedrick is tough to defend. She works inside for rebounds and points, but can also pop out and take a jump shot. She had 12 rebounds, 4 steals, 1 blocked shot, and 6 points.

Westwood's Noelle Cobin and Rachel Mosca are deadly from the outside. They have quick releases, which enable them to shoot accurate long-range shots. Cobin had 12 points, two of which were three-pointers, along with 2 rebounds. Mosca had 5 points, one of which was a 3 pointer, along with 1 assist. Emily Molk kept her head up, looking for open teammates. She had 5 assists along with 6 reounds, 1 steal, and 2 points.

Pascack Hills' Kayla Strick is good at drawing fouls. She finished with 9 points and 2 rebounds.
