FRANKLIN FURNACE — The New Boston Lady Tigers pulled out an aggressive 43-9 win against the Green Bobcats Thursday night on the road.

“I expected us to come with high intensity,” the coach stated.

New Boston was led by Ali Hamilton with 19 points. Hamilton has been scoring in the double digits all season.

“Ali comes out every night playing hard,” Wiley commented. “Those are always her scores. She’s really one of our leaders on the court.”

Following Hamilton was Mariah Buckley with 11 points throughout the game.
