Greenwich girls basketball team earns a road victory against FCIAC foe Westhill

Greenwich High’s girls basketball team snapped a three-game losing streak with a 49-35 victory over Westhill on Wednesday in Stamford.

Junior guard Kristin Riggs scored a team-high 14 points to pace the Cardinals, who held a 22-12 halftime lead. The Cardinals’ win came one day after they fell to Ridgefield, which is 8-0 on the season.

“After a difficult loss at Ridgefield, we talked about how to play together and the importance of playing through adversity,” Greenwich coach Chrys Hernandez said. “I thought Ridgefield was solid last year, but seeing them this year, they were by far, the strongest team I have seen in a long time. It was nice to see our team not hang their heads after that loss.”

Junior forward Kayla Anderson had seven points, while freshman forward Julia Monteiro and senior forward Marielle Povinelli added six points apiece. Povinelli made two 3-pointers to help spark the Cardinals (2-6).

“I love how everyone contributed today,” Hernandez said. “We played the entire team and everyone contributed in some way. We had 10 players score, which was great to see.”

Junior Audra Hansen led Westhill with a game-high 17 points. Greenwich visits Trumbull on Friday for a 5 p.m. matchup, then hosts Stamford on Saturday on for its Senior Day.
