Wills helps Goretti snap Broadfording's win streak-roundup



* GIRLS BASKETBALL


The last two minutes weren't her best, but St. Maria Goretti point guard Kelly Wills had already done enough in the first 30.

Wills finished with 10 points, five assists and a strong defensive effort against Broadfording Christian Academy's Dee Brown as the Gaels snapped the No. 8 Lions' 11-game winning streak with a 44-37 upset win Thursday night.

"Kelly played great defense tonight and had a good game ... she was our floor general tonight," Goretti coach Todd Rideout said. "She carried us."

Broadfording held Goretti's Heidi Siirtola to a season-low six points, but the Gaels (12-10) got key buckets from everyone else in a 18-8 third-quarter run to put the Lions (19-4) away.

"They had a triangle-and-2 going on Kelly and Heidi," Rideout said. "Tasha Deneen, Claire Martin, Katie Chambers, they hit the shots. When they got those looks, we banged 'em in."

Broadfording tried to charge in the fourth quarter, but never pulled closer than five. Vanessa Ruffin had 18 points, but Brown scored a season-low six.
