Newmarket defense denies Farmington

Newmarket held visiting Farmington without a field goal for the opening 10 minutes of action and won a pivotal Division IV match-up, 29-22, on Tuesday night.

The Mules won the opening quarter 10-3 and that proved to be the difference as they won by a seven-point margin. Newmarket was led by a game-high 10 points from Kiara Rugora, while the Tigers were paced by 8 points from Anna Cardinal.

The win moves the Mules to 14-3 on the season and puts a strangle hold on the #3 seed for the upcoming state tournament.

Farmington entered the game in fourth place, but the Tiger’s loss snaps a four-game win streak and puts them in a four-way tie for fifth place in the loss column.
