Lady Sachems basketball team closing in on playoff bid By Greg Phipps B ack-to-back impressive wins as of ear ly this week had the Saugus girls’ basketball team knocking on the door for a state playoff bid. They need just two wins to qualify for the tournament. Alessia Salzillo’s 13 points and four steals helped the Sachems defeat the Lynn English Bulldogs, 44-29, last Friday. Saugus followed that up by defeating Medford by double digits on Tuesday. The wins lifted Saugus’s season mark to 8-6 with a Northeastern Conference home game against a tough Peabody squad scheduled for this Friday night. The Sachems lost at Peabody by a 61-44 count back in December. After building a commanding 31-11 lead at halftime of last week’s Lynn English contest at home, the Sachems managed just 13 points in the second half. Despite that offensive dry spell, they were never seriously challenged. Along with Salzillo’s output, Taylor Bogdanski’s six points, Kiley Ronan’s five, and a key three-pointer by Marissa Stockwell helped secure the win. Sachems head coach Mark Schruender was pleased with his team’s ability to control the boards and the tempo against the Bulldogs. “We rebounded really well. Going into the game, we talked about English being a good transition team,” he told the press after the contest. “We really wanted to control the transition on both ends. I thought we did a great job getting back and pushing the pace ahead. Rebounding and transition [were] something we emphasized and executed tonight.” In Tuesday’s 53-35 win at Medford, Salzillo chipped in 12 points and Jillian Ricupero netted a career best 14. Schruender expressed his satisfaction with the focus and fortitude his squad has demonstrated this season. “They really do a great job of focusing and recognizing the team they’re about to play, their strengths and weaknesses and getting ready for that team,” he observed. “We’ve had tough games, we’ve had great games, but we’ve stayed humble. That’s a credit to [the team’s] character.”
