7th grade girls- Southern Boone Tournament results
November 19, 2012Hallsville High School
from Coach Josh Lancaster
Last night we played in the 3rd place game at the 7th Grade Southern Boone Basketball tournament against the Blair Oaks Falcons.
After a long week that saw us playing our 3rd game in 4 days we seemed sluggish from the start allowing Blair Oaks to jump out to a 12-0 lead before finding ourselves down 14-2 after the 1st quarter. The girls battled back cutting that deficit to 14-8 before a Blair Oaks run at the end of the first half got it back to 18-8 deficit against the Falcons. Our struggles continued throughout the 2nd half on our way to a 26-11 loss.
The girls effort was there all night, we just seemed to lack focus throughout the game except for about 4 minutes of the 2nd quarter when we battled back. But overall, very proud of the girls this week and thought they had a couple great outings showing the progress they're making and a new, more competitive attitude they've developed...so we're going to forget about last night as we refocus for our next game.
We travel to Harrisburg on Monday for a 6:00 pm tipoff against the Bulldogs. Thanks to all who traveled with us to Ashland this week and everyone for their support of these girls as they continue to work and get better!
