Carlson was already looking ahead to the teams' third meeting in Monday's regional semifinal at Oswego.
"We can play with them, and we can beat them," Carlson said. "Coming off a close loss maybe this gets us more hungry. Monday is when it counts, what it's all about."
Oswego East sure hopes to have Engelhardt, helped off the court late Tuesday, to be available for that one. She was huge Tuesday.
Engelhardt hit three 3-pointers in the second half, with back-to-back threes – the second, banked in in transition – to push the Wolves ahead 32-24. Her last 3-pointer, right before the injury, gave the Wolves a 40-36 lead with 2:12 left.
"She had some big threes, big steals, was attacking the hoop, she was hitting those shots and she rebounded well," Carretto said.
