Holy Cross girls host undefeated St. Paul

It’s the showdown of the season on Monday night at The Pit when Holy Cross (12-1) hosts undefeated St. Paul (12-0) at 7.
The Falcons come in blasting opponents by an average of just over 28 points per contest. St. Paul’s closest game so far was on Jan. 13, when it bested Woodland 44-39 on the road. Through the first 11 games, Lizzy Cretella was the leading scorer for the Falcons at 17.2 points per game. Lizzy Ferraro was averaging 10.1 points through 11 games.
Holy Cross has won seven straight games since falling to Mercy in that school’s holiday tournament. The Crusaders are beating opponents by over 32 points per outing. Holy Cross is led by RaShana Siders, who averages 17.8 points per game. Century McCartney comes in at 12.2. Holy Cross has been rolling recently with winning margins of 40, 42, 27, 40, 42 and 40 in its last six games.
The teams met once last season, with the Crusaders claiming a 64-43 win over the Falcons at St. Paul. These are the top two teams in the NVL, so this should be a good game.
