Caveney sparks Warriors past rivals

Girls basketball

Visiting Central Catholic fought back from a deficit as large as 13 points to tie the game with 6:03 left to play. But then Devon Caveney, who had battled foul trouble, came back into the game and Andover went into lockdown mode, scoring the final 12 points of the night to take an emotional 49-37 victory on Friday.

“We’ve never lost to Central Catholic on this court,” said Caveney, who finished with 16 points and six rebounds. “We came out with heart and energy to get it done. I’m so proud of us.

“I was so mad that I got four fouls. But once I got back on the court, I didn’t want to lose.”

So all she did was hit on a couple of free throws and a pair of pressure-packed 3’s to boost the lead to eight while pulling down four rebounds and getting a clutch steal during the run.

Angelice Gonzalez was a fearless force in Andover’s quick start, scoring 14 of her 18 points in the opening 16 minutes to get the Warriors (now 11-2) up by nine (29-20) at the break.

Rebecca Alois scored 12 points and Abby Katz added 10 as Andover downed Chelmsford 53-43 last Tuesday. Devon Caveney added a team-high 14 points and Jessica Witten had six points for the winners.
