"I think the first half we left a lot of points out there, left a lot of layups out there and we left free throws out there," Huskies coach Holly Ismail said. "You can't win ballgames against a team like this, I mean your going into the half down by 16, you're killing yourself mentally."
The third quarter didn't look much different, as McCluskey' steal and basket just seconds in got the Eagles rolling in half number two. That was McCluskey's (17 points) only basket of the quarter, while Norton continued her hot hand with eight points, including her second and third 3's of the contest.
There was no letup by the Eagles for the majority of the fourth quarter. McCluskey had seven in the quarter and Stephanie Jones had six. Endia Jones was the fourth Eagle to find double figures, finishing with 13 points.
Qalea Ismail led Patterson Mill (8-2, 13-6) with 15 points, while Golec, who was forced to sit early with two fouls, finished with 11. Sam Herman and Lydia Moro each scored eight points in the loss.
