OROVILLE 36 @ MANSON LADY TROJANS 45
Coach Hill reports….
This was a great win for us, once again things really weren't going our way throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters, but the girls worked together to get through the tough times for well earned win! We had a lot of trouble during the middle quarters and it seemed like we were playing five against 8 at times.
All game long we struggled at the foul line (7-26,) but when we needed them the most in the fourth quarter we managed to make 5 of them to secure the win. We had another 18 turnovers, but when the game got tight towards the end we quit turning it over and forced Oroville into many of their own turnovers; which was the difference in the final outcome. It was really nice to jump out to a lead tonight instead of trying to play comeback all game like we have at times lately. The girls came out really focused and ready to play. I could really tell that they were not satisfied with their performance at Liberty Bell on Tuesday and wanted to prove to themselves that they are a much better basketball team.
Vetta Maynard had a great game with 26 points (13 in the deciding fourth quarter) and 9 steals. Marci Nelson had 2 rebounds. Whitni England had 5 points and 5 rebounds. Verna LaCourse and Abby Bridgewater both played great defense in the post. Veronica Vanderholm had 5 points and 8 rebounds. Hailey Ellsworth continued her strong play (while having to play a new position) with 7 points and 8 rebounds. Angelica Suarez provided a huge spark off the bench with her pressure defense as did Eva Escoto, who also scored 2 points on a nice jump shot.
We travel to Soap Lake on Tuesday, January 20th to play the Eagles. JV Ladies play at 4:30 p.m. with Varsity following at 6:00 p.m.
