PSAL girls’ basketball playoffs: Susan Wagner advances

Heather Caroccia (12 points) hit key buckets in the second half to send No. 4 seed Susan Wagner to a 41-26 PSAL AA quarterfinal playoff win over No. 5 Midwood Sunday afternoon at York College.

“We were down at the end of the first quarter, and had a two-point lead at the half. The girls woke up towards the end of the third, and provided us some breathing room,” said SW coach Tom Rizzo, whose squad will face four-time defending champion South Shore next Saturday in the semifinals, also at York at 3 p.m.

Denise Priolo netted 10 points, while Clare Regolizio and Brianna Ivackovic excelled defensively and provided leadership off the bench.

“This is a milestone win for our program. We’ve come such a long way, and we’re going to do everything we can to leave it all on the court and give it our best shot net week. Hard work and preparation will get us ready for Saturday,” added Rizzo.
