By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON — The inclement weather kept some folks at home, but those who did venture to the St. E Center on Tuesday night were treated to an entertaining Catholic Conference girls basketball game. St. Elizabeth led after one, but the state’s top-ranked team, the Ursuline Raiders, turned it around in the second and took control after that in a 62-50 win.

The Raiders had a five-point halftime lead but put distance between themselves and the No. 4 Vikings after halftime. Ursuline opened the third on a 9-2 run and outscored St. Elizabeth, 19-7, in the quarter. Maggie Connolly scored three of her team-best 17 points on a triple, and Alisha Lewis added two slashing field goals. Read more »
