Big Road Win For Freeze

Fredericton Freeze needed a road win.

They got it the old-fashioned way Thursday night in Moncton.

Tenacious defence and timely scoring sparked the Freeze to an entertaining and wildly physical 81-62 win over hometown Moncton Mystics in Maritime Women’s Basketball Association play.

Fredericton moved to 5-4. Moncton slipped to 3-6.

Both teams have one game left in the regular season.

Allie McCarthy and Eva Tumwine both scored 17 points to fuel Fredericton. Both Amanda Russell and Bailey Russell sunk a dozen apiece.

Leonie Elbert paced Moncton with 17 points. Allie Berry added 13.

Freeze held a 43-36 halftime lead.
