It was quite a quick turnaround in a touch situation for Bishop Ford. The Falcons were blown away by Amanda Burakoski and Mary Louis on Tuesday and two days later had to visit defending CHSAA Brooklyn/Queens champion Archbishop Molloy, which looked to be hitting its stride.

But Bishop Ford would leave Briarwood with one of its best wins of the season topping Molloy, 64-53, on Thursday night behind 20 points, seven rebounds and four steals from junior forward Shayra Brown. The loss ends a four-game winning streak for the Stanners.

“This is the kind of team we are,” Falcons coach John LoSasso said. “It depends on the match-ups because of our youth and inexperience. This was a good win for us.”

It was a victory that also featured one of sophomore point guard Anjali Moncrieffe’s best performances of the season for Bishop Ford (6-6, 1-2 CHSAA Brooklyn/Queens). She scored a season-high 19 points, grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists. Vanessa D’Ambrosi added 10 points and eight rebounds. Marielle Duryea led Molloy (7-5, 1-2) with 15 points and Nicole Marciniak added 13.

Bishop Ford trailed 11-10 after the first quarter, led by five at the half and took a 38-32 lead into the fourth. The Falcons connected on 25-of-35 free throws to help hold off the Stanners in the fourth.

“We made critical shots and key free throws,” LoSasso said. “When you are ahead you play more relaxed.”

Notre Dame Academy 45, St. Joseph Hill 35: Teresa Conigliaro had 10 points to lead Notre Dame Academy (8-4, 2-1 CHSAA Staten Island). Keelan Smith led St. Joseph Hill (5-5, 0-4) with 19 points.

St. John Villa 50, St. Joseph by the Sea 44: Shpresa Leharevic had 16 points to lead St. John Villa (5-6, 3-1 CHSAA Staten Island). Alyssa Castania had 13 points, Katie Edwards had 12 points and Maria Nardulli had 10 for St. Joseph by the Sea (3-5, 1-4).
