O’Flynn scored all six of her points from the foul line and also added four rebounds and seven steals.
Zegarowski came back in to start the third quarter where she scored 10 of her 20 points. She was aggressive going to the hoop to get the foul calls, but also made some crafty outside shots that did the Clippers in.
Newburyport held the Tigers to just eight points in the fourth quarter and even made a little run down the stretch. It was too late to take the lead at that point, but head coach Greg Dollas was please with the way they closed out the game.
“I think we finally moved without ball,” explained Dollas. “Once we got things going and made some shots, we looked a little bit more relaxed in the fourth quarter. It was nice to see some of the girls get going and hopefully it will spark them for the next game.”
Ipswich is off until Thursday when it hosts Masconomet at home. The Tigers are looking to stay consistent across the board and really develop their defense.
“We’re still in the stages of building that defense,” Carter-Zegarowski added. “We had a lot of girls come in off the bench and contribute off the bench, that’s a big goal of ours.”
