The Bogota Lady Bucs season came to an end yesterday with a 52-46 loss to #11 ranked Boonton Lady Bombers at Speary gym. Bogota had to play catch-up for most of the games as Boonton Sr. Korena Noce was just going to be denied a chance to play another game. The Lady Bucs just could not find time, or space to play their game. However even trailing by double digits in the second half Bogota get their hearts in the game , and slowly started to climb back in. Sr. Jillian Marino put her foot on the gas and lead the charge in the final quarter. Her teammate helped make sure their Captain would finish with a strong game . Marissa Veron contributed a game high 19 points, with Denna Brugger, and Stephanie Perpeaj pressing the Boonton players all over the court. The Lady Bucs forced and grabbed a number of turnover to bring the home crowd to it's feet trying to will the host a surprise finish. But, and emotionally driven Technical Foul, and resulting points was just to high of an hurdle to get over. Even when the Lady Bombers started a slow down offence to kill the clock Bogota still pressured playing a the way until time run out. Not a game to forget about the tears afterwards, but one to be proud of , with the work shown.
