St. Francis girls hoops wins on road
WOODSTOCK – The St. Francis girls basketball team overcame a rough night at the free-throw line to edge Marian Central, 54-43, on Monday in Suburban Christian Conference Gold play.
The Spartans (10-9, 5-1 SCC Gold) went 15 for 35 from the foul line, but a strong start and consistent defense helped balance things out.
“I’m a little disappointed in that showing at the line,” St. Francis coach Mike Phillips said. “But we led from the beginning and ended up with a conference win in a tough place to play.”
St. Francis senior guard Kate Slattery scored a game-high 25 points.
