December 18, 2012By Damion Allen of Thomas Jefferson High School
Riding a two game win streak and playing their first home game of the season was cause for excitement on Friday as the lady spartans hosted the 4th ranked team in the 4a classification . the visiting D'Evelyn lady jaguars wasted no time in showing why they carried such a high ranking . behind a barrage of 2and 3 point shots the jags raced out to a 12 point lead at the end of the first quarter. The lady spartans calmed down and closed the gap to seven half way thru the 2nd quarter, but failed defensive assignments and hot perimeter shooting by the lady jags left the lady spartans down by 23 at the half . a cold shooting first 5 minutes of the 3rd quarter by both teams never allowed the lady spartans to get back in the game , eventually suffering a 81-43 defeat.Center Essence Reece led the lady spartans with 21 points and 12 rebounds. The lady spartans head into the christmas break with a 2-6 record , encouraged by better play and execution on both sides of the floor , coaches and players both agree that the team will be ready to go in January when play resumes.
