Tina Gigli had nine points and nine rebounds for the Falcons. The freshman was a factor off the bench, driving to the hoop for layups and pounding the boards. Emily McNulty, who was in double figures with 11 points, also came up big on the glass along with Ashley Arnoldy.
The Falcons used their speed to create turnovers and point guard Delaney Zecha had a game high six steals and six points. Llewellyn, McNulty, and White all had three steals apiece.
Danvers will be without sophomore Devan Walsh all season after she suffered a torn ACL during soccer season. Junior Kara Connors turned her ankle in the Winthrop game and was in a boot, but the Falcons are glad to have senior forward Allie Walsh back after she was out with a torn ACL last season.
“Devan really made this team gel, and we’re going to miss her,” said Veilleux. “Connors was playing very well against Winthrop; we’ll have to wait to see how long she’ll be out. Injuries are tough, but it gives other people the opportunity to step up.”
