After defeating host Chelsea, 49-27 on Jan. 17, the Everett High School girls’ basketball team (4-8) experienced another tough, close loss the next night at home against Lynn Classical, 49-47.

Malaica Guillaume was credited with her third double / double of the season after coming up with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Emilia Maria Babcock also did her part to keep her teammates in the game with 15 points, five rebounds and four steals.

The Everett girls then traveled to Lynn English to take on the Bulldogs Tuesday night, where they defeated the home team, 48-41.

“Our girls played with poise in this game,” said coach Riley Dunn. “We were hungry, and were also relentless at the end of the game, working really hard to get back into the win column.”

Babcock led all scorers in this game with 24 points, which included connecting on three huge free throws down the stretch to seal the deal for her teammates.

Guillaume was all over the boards once again. She was able to grab 11 rebounds, while scoring 12 points to now account for her fourth double / double this season.

“Big plays were made down the stretch from the likes of Kaesta Sandy on the boards that doesn’t even include the solid defensive pressure that came from the tandem of Casey Martinez and Sonia Constanza Flores,” said Dunn after Tuesday night’s game. “This was a great team win. I’m really proud of these girls for getting it done tonight.”

The Everett girls have since traveled to Somerville to face the Highlanders on Jan. 25 after press deadline, before coming home to host non-league New Mission Monday night, starting at 5:30 p.m. The Tide will then take on Somerville again, but this time on their home court the next night, beginning at 7 p.m., followed by a trip to Revere Thursday night, Feb. 1 for a game against the rival Patriots at the same time.
