SHARE New Trier continues unbeaten streak with easy win over Maine West at Dundee-Crown

THE SKINNY

This second-round Dundee-Crown tournament game pitted two teams very familiar with each other. New Trier and Maine West both reside in the Central Suburban League. The conference co-habitation did nothing to help the Warriors, who were no match for a Trevians team still undefeated this season (14-0).

TURNING POINT

The Trevians picked up three fouls in the game’s first minute. It didn’t take long before they adjusted to the way the game was being called. It was the second quarter where New Trier flexed its muscle. A 21-11 lead swelled to 29-14 with 5:30 remaining in the half. When sophomore center Jessica Boehm (game-high 23 points) banked in a lay up two minutes later, the score was 35-14 Trevians.

THE STAR

Kathryn Pedi. New Trier’s sophomore swingman was a force inside and out. She finished with 14 points but also distinguished herself on defense as Pedi was tasked with guarding Warriors 6-foot senior Brittany Collins, who finished with just two field goals.

BY THE NUMBERS

New Trier had 11 different players score.

QUOTABLE

“In the first half our defense was so good and so strong it really brought up our offense. It made our offense so much stronger. We did a really good job tonight.” -Pedi said.
