The JV Lady Trojans played as good of a game as they have played in awhile. This game came right down to the last seconds as SoapLake barely escaped with a 2 point win, but Manson totally out played them during the second half.
Yessenia Escoto led the team with many rebounds and got the fast break going on many occasions even finishing it herself at times. Eva Escoto and Cheyanne McFadden shared the ball handling duties and both point guards did a great job of not turning the ball over, the girls had their fewest turnovers of the year.
Mindy Neal had another stellar game shooting the ball from the outside; Mindy is really doing a good job of finding the open spot in the zone to get open shots. Sierra Miller, even with a hurt ankle, had a good game getting off some nice shots and pulling down a couple rebounds. Thalia Lepley played real well at the defensive end getting some rebounds. Thalia is doing a good job of moving her feet on defense and learning how to play help defense. Amanda Buck came to the way she always does, she played hard every second she was on the court and it got results as she caused many SoapLake turnovers.
Ally Mendivill continues to impress with her hustle and the she goes to the hoop with the ball. Ally wants to score and has really created a spark for this jv team ever since she started playing in games 1 week ago. Idalia Guillen worked hard to get some rebounds against much taller players than her. Ofelia Rodriguez came and also created a spark on defense; she works so hard and has such long arms that she made it very difficult for the SoapLake players to move the ball inside of our zone defense. We didn’t hit our free throws, but the good news is that we competed throughout the entire game. We’re going to continue to work on pressure defense, balanced scoring and shooting under pressure.
Looking ahead, we play the Chelan C team in a scrimmage game at home on Thursday, January 22nd at 7:00 p.m. and Bridgeport on Friday the 23rd at home at 4:30 p.m. in the old gym. Thank you for your support to the JV Lady Trojans.
