The Pembroke Academy girls’ basketball team crashed the offensive glass, came up with 22 steals and used all those extra possessions to come away with a 46-33 win against Oyster River on Tuesday night at home. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Spartans (3-4).

“After a slow start in the first quarter, we adjusted and started to play Spartan basketball,” PA coach Caitlin Powers said. “The girls came out with more intensity in the second half, which helped get us back in the win column against a very hard-working Oyster River team.”

Sophomore Makenzie Zanis finished with a team-high 10 points and five steals and played with a great intensity. Jade Jade Pescinski had eights points and three steals and played some tough defense for PA, while Lindsay St. Jacques led the offensive rebounding effort with six, and finsihed with 10 rebounds total to go along with eight points.

Carissa Miller had 16 points for Oyster River (0-7) and Marlee Yoder finished with nine points.
