South Side's Bridget McFadden, left, pressures the ball during the team's victory over Westbury to close the first half of the Conference A-I schedule.

The win over New Hyde Park marked the tipoff of the second half of the conference schedule, which runs through Feb. 11. The Lady Cyclones will be out to avenge hard-fought losses to Wantagh (42-36 on Dec. 21) and Garden City (63-53 on Jan. 11) and earn a top eight seed in the Nassau Class A playoffs. “Both games were close,” Dunn said. “I came away feeling good each time.”

Garden City’s Samatha Auricchio, a sophomore, was lights-out against South Side with 27 points on 10-for-13 shooting. She missed only two of nine shots from behind the arc. “We always had a hand in her face,” Dunn said. “It was just an incredible shooting night for her.” Kiernan and Hawley had 11 points apiece, and juniors Katie Pizzani and Caroline Leck both came off the bench to hit a trey for the Lady Cyclones, who trailed by 10 after the first quarter.
