"We executed on what we needed to do,"said Altia Anderson. "We did not miss that many layups and we were all fighting for the rebounds and going for the boards."
Anderson scored 14 points and hit 8 of her 10 free throws. Woodbridge head coach Emilio Perry said one of the keys to the win was Anderson knowing she did not have to do it all.
