Girls Holiday Tourney Finals 12/28/11
December 29, 2011By Mike Thornburg of Monroe Central Jr.- Sr. High School
Your Bears turned in a Herculean effort in the championship game of the Holiday Classic and came away with a win over Blackford 51-48. The Bears were down 27-19 at half. A better defensive effort coupled with good decision making and strong bench play enabled the girls to chip away in the third period to close out the quarter down 37-33. BIG MO carried them into the fourth stanza and your Bears took the lead mid-way through the fourth 44-43. Continued ball pressure on D and solid play offensively over the last four minutes propelled the Bears to the conclusion of the championship contest.
Passion, Purpose and Poise were hitting on all cylinders over the tournament for the varsity. The play of your Bears over Christmas break sets them up in fine fashion heading into the Randolph County tourney next week. We will play the host Union City Indians on Thursday night at 7:30.
Thanks to all of you who came out to support the kids and coaches over the Classic.
