1/14 GBB - Lk Roosevelt
Lake Roosevelt 45 - Lady Trojans 40
Coach Toolson reports:
The Manson Trojan girls basketball team traveled to Lake Roosevelt on Tuesday night. It was a game that saw Manson fall behind early, keep it competitive, and then make a comeback at the end. Unfortunately, we ran out of time and lost by a final of 45-40.
The girls came out flat in the first quarter and it took several minutes for them to find their comfort level. Turnovers continue to be a problem for us and led to several easy baskets for the Raiders. The girls made it a focal point to attack the basket more this game and were pretty successful as we got more lay in attempts and drew fouls for more free throws.
The entire second half felt like we were on the verge of taking control of the game, but either a turnover or missed lay in or missed free throw didn't allow us to take the momentum. Finally, in the last 3 minutes we were able to rally to down 4, and ended up losing by 5.
Every girl who played made a nice contribution to the effort and they played hard until the end.
