In years past, a game against Mary Help of Christians would be the perfect remedy; an automatic easy win. But having scored just seven points and trailing with two minutes to go in the first half, the Cardinals were being outhustled and in danger of dropping a key league game to a team that was desperate to pull an upset. Megan Shannon capped a 6-0 run to end the first half with a buzzer-beating jumper. Hannah Zadoyka hit a pair of huge 3-pointers early in the third and fourth quarters and Pompton Lakes snapped its losing skid with a 31-19 victory on Monday at Mary Help of Christians Academy in North Haledon. “We couldn’t make a shot and they made big some big ones,” said Mary Help of Christians’ head coach Ed Torres. “We’ve been in all five games we’ve played this year.
