Trying to defend sharp long-range shooting is one thing. Finding ways to stop the outside jumpers when they occur following drives and kick-out passes is all the more challenging. You don\u2019t have to tell the Bethel Wildcats that. Trumbull High\u2019s girls basketball team sank nine 3-pointers and logged a dozen assists on 20 field goals en route to a 53-32 victory over Bethel at the Masuk Holiday Tournament in Monroe on Monday night. The Eagles improved to 4-1 overall and advanced to take on Amity of Woodbridge in Wednesday\u2019s tourney championship game beginning at 7 p.m. Alyssa Breunig hit a trio of 3-pointers, and Claudia Tucci, Aisling Maguire and Julie Keckler all drained two shots from beyond the arc. Tucci scored a game-high 18 points. Breunig scored 11, Keckler had 10 and Maguire added 8. Tucci and Taylor Brown each had 8 rebounds. Brown had five assists to go along with three steals. \u201cI was really impressed with our girls, the way we shared the ball,\u201d Trumbull coach Steve Tobitsch said. \u201cWe were moving the ball well.\u201d Trumbull led 29-22 at halftime, and the Eagles\u2019 first points of the second half came on, what else but a 3-pointer as Breunig extended the lead to double digits. \u201cI think we moved the ball really well as a team today and it helped us open up the opportunities for the shooters,\u201d added captain Nina Vetter. After Bethel got the deficit back to single digits, a Breunig trey from the corner made it 37-25. Bethel again got back to within nine, but Maguire beat the third quarter buzzer with yet another trifecta, making the score 42-30 heading into the fourth. \u201cWe\u2019re a tough team to key in on because we have a lot of girls who can score from different positions on the floor,\u201d Tobitsch said. Trumbull made some baskets from in close, making the drive and pass outside all the more effective. \u201cOnce we were able to do that we were able to execute,\u201d said Breunig, a captain. Trumbull\u2019s defense was as impressive as its long-range shooting. The Eagles held the Wildcats to just 10 points in the second half. Tobitsch was pleased with his team\u2019s defensive effort throughout the game, and thought his players did a better job of shutting down Bethel\u2019s top scoring threats in the third and fourth quarters. The Wildcats were led by Lily Daniels with 12 points, eight of which came from the free throw line. \u201cWe were definitely more aggressive on defense,\u201d Breunig said of her team\u2019s second-half efforts.
