Haller's 25 Leads Cougars Over Patchogue-Medford, 50-38

Sophomore guard scores 21 of team's 28 second-half points

Score: Commack 50, Patchogue-Medford 38

Records: Commack 3-5, 2-2 in League I, Patchogue-Medford 1-7, 0-3 in League 1

The Hero: Cougars sophomore guard Kerry Haller scored 21 of her 25 points in the second half. 

The Turning Point: Haller's first basket after halftime broke a 22-all tie. She scored nine of the Cougars' first 10 points of the second half, establishing an eight-point lead that never shrunk below five.

The Quote: "We’re a young team, but we’re looking for kids to step up and be leaders. She’s our point guard and a returning starter even though she’s only a sophomore. She did a nice job tonight controlling the basketball. She played tough, played good defense and she did what we asked her to do." - Commack head coach Bruce Haller.

The Bottom Line: Commack was able to hit their shots down the stretch, and stifle any comeback hopes the Lady Raiders were clinging to. They also hit their free throws, an area Patchogue-Medford had a lot of difficulty with in the second half.

Key Stat: Patchogue-Medford was 4-for-15 from the free throw line in the second half.

Who's Next? Weather permitting, Commack will host William Floyd on Thursday at 4 p.m.
