Audubon's Lord nets 1,000 points

Posted: February 19, 2014

The Audubon girls' basketball program hasn't had the chance to celebrate many 1,000-point scorers over the last decade and a half.

Until a couple of weeks ago, no one had reached the milestone since 2001. Now the Green Wave have had two in the last 10 days.

Maddie Lord became the latest to score her 1,000th point, doing so Monday in a 59-32 win over visiting Lindenwold.

Lord needed 12 points entering the Colonial Conference game. She reached the mark in style. Her sister, Erica, fed her a bounce pass on a two-on-one break, and Lord finished a righthanded layup.

Players and fans streamed onto the court and tackled the senior guard. They're getting used to the drill. Senior forward Val Pineiro scored her 1,000th point against Maple Shade on Feb. 7.

Lord scored 17 of her 19 points Monday in the first half. Pineiro added 11, and Mackenzie Reilly had nine.

Before Pineiro, the last Audubon girls' player to score her 1,000th point was Nicole Cannon in 2001.

Olympic Patriot. Winslow Township used a hot second half to beat visiting Seneca, 74-58. Jada Matthews poured in 25 points, and Jocelynne Jones had 19. Kyanna Filmore chipped in with 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Ashli Creek had nine points and 11 rebounds. Winslow Township outscored Seneca, 49-36, in the second half.

Jessica Monte scored 19 points to pace Washington Township to a 67-42 win at Cherry Hill East. Brianna Capacchione scored 14, and Erin Rafter had 12. Emily Reisman led Cherry Hill East with 12.

Nonleague. Ten players scored for Gloucester in a rout of visiting West Deptford. Alisha Fox scored 19 points and Kylee Hirst had 11. The Lions broke the game open with a 13-2 run in the second quarter.

Aliya Stephens scored 20 points, and Paul VI won at Haddon Township, 57-49. Kiana Ye added 18. Katie Burns had 17 points for Haddon Township.

A balanced attack led host Delsea in a 53-27 win over Our Lady of Mercy. Haley Parks scored 17, Jess Monteleone had 15, and Asya Alba had 14. Katie Kavanagh scored 23 for Our Lady of Mercy.

Boys' Basketball

Jake Ferrell scored 11, and Jake Limpert had 10 as Seneca topped visiting Winslow Township, 59-51.
