New London 7th and 8th grade girls basketball team took another road trip this past Sunday to play Mansfield, and once again came back with another big victory. The dream team bested Mansfield 47 to 23, which leaves them 5-0 in the power pac conference and 7-0 overall. 

"I tell you, my team is just getting better every day," said the understandably proud head coach, Calvin Fort. "We knocked down some important three pointers and my two centers just collected all the rebounds. I told my girls all week during practice we have to box out and get the rebound. That is the only way we going to win this game ... and that's exactly what they did. It makes me happy to see my girls coming up to court with a big giant smile on their face. I'm one proud coach."

The team's next game will be January 5 against Stonington at the Mashantucket Community Center.
