Lady Trojans 32 - Waterville 26
Coach Toolson reports:
The Manson girls basketball team won their first game of the season on Saturday night at Waterville by a final score or 32-26. Itzel Castro exploded out of the blocks, drilling 3-3 pointers in the first quarter, allowing the Trojans to jump out to an early 10 point lead. Manson went on a long dry spell over the 2nd and 3rd quaters, scoring only 4 in each period which allowed Waterville to creep back into the game.
Fortunately, we were able to get a couple of offensive rebounds and put backs, as well as some free throws to fall in the final period to get the win. The girls played great defense, holding the Shockers to only 26 points. We also did a good job on the boards, out rebounding the taller opponents by 8.
Our next game is back at Waterville on December 27 against Bridgeport in a holiday tournament.
