WAKEFIELD — The Wakefield Memorial High girls’ basketball team hadn’t played a game in a week and it showed especially in the first quarter of last night’s non-league game against Cathedral High School at the Charbonneau Field House.

The Warriors were outscored 17-5 in the first eight minutes of the contest and 12-5 in the second quarter as they never recovered in a 50-35 defeat.

Wakefield fell to 2-3 overall on the season.

“Give them credit, they hit some open three point shots and we missed some shots,” said Coach Meghan O’Connell. “We continue to work hard but they applied some full court pressure. We hit more shots in the second half and we had a full effort. There may have been some rust, but everybody is on vacation at this time of the year. We need to get back to practice and continue to work and go from there.”

Dejah Jenkins was the high scorer for Cathedral, which is private school in Boston. Jenkins scored 14 points including two three-pointers.

Taliayah Countrymon was next with 10 points including three treys, while Lara Matos and Masseny Kada recorded nine points apiece.

Wakefield’s high scorer for the contest was sophomore Olivia Dziadyk as she had seven points. Seniors Gabby Joly and Mia Joyce, along with sophomores Hailey Lovell and Hannah Dziadyk all recorded four points.

The Warriors trailed by 12 points after the first quarter and were down by 19 points, 29-10, at halftime. Both teams scored 10 points in the third quarter as Wakefield trailed 39-20. Wakefield outscored Cathedral, 15-11, in the final eight minutes for the 50-35 final score.

Wakefield will need to practice to stay sharp as it will be off for nearly another week until it takes the court again. The Warriors will resume league play on Tuesday, Jan. 5 when they take on Wilmington at 7 p.m. at Wilmington High School.
