Mercy knocks off Career

Mercy got a big lift from Maria Weselyj to lead the No. 5 Tigers to a 64-52 win over No. 2 Career today at Wilbur Cross.

The Tigers (3-1) needed a third scorer to complement Sadie Edwards and Amber Bepko, and Weselyj filled that role Saturday with a game-high 16 points. Bepko added 15 points, Edwards had 12 points and Southington transfer Jordyn Nappi had 13 points to give Mercy four players in double figures.

The difference proved to be in the fourth quarter, where the Tigers outscored the Panthers 18-7. Career coach Kevin Walton said the Tigers simply “wanted it more.”

Jasmine Claxton and Ashley Franklin each had 15 points for the Panthers (3-1).
