January 26 the girls JV Bonac Basketball team played Miller Place with a sad defeat, 24-43. The girls had a tough game only scoring 7 points in the second half. But in their defense, Miller Place put up a strong defense that the Bonackers couldn’t do anything about. Top scorers for the Bonackers were Nora Conlon with 9 points, Ariana Islami with 8 points, followed by Tiffany Gomez with 4 points, and Virginia Persinal and Deniah Desmond each with 2 points. The score did not, however, depict how the girls played. They started off slow, but they started to work together. They even rallied at the end of the game, but it just wasn’t enough to break the point deficit. Although Miller place was a hard team to beat, the Bonackers stayed determined right up until the end of the game. On a positive note, the Bonackers did beat Amityville on the road yesterday 1/28/2019 by 3 points, showing Amityville the real spirit of the Girls JV basketball team.
