Posen’s leading scorer of the night was Cami LaTulip with ten points.
“In the fourth our defense was more stingy and we held down the floor. We were able to get some points on the board,” Fairview coach Marc Winton said.
The leading scorers for Fairview were Alyson Winton with 13 points, Andrea Ford with 11, and Jenna DeJarlais with nine.
