Coach Hill reports….
What a game this was both teams played extremely hard, the intensity was unbelievable. Both teams had many great runs.
It had to be a great game to just watch and be a spectator. (The Manson fans were fired up!)
We jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but then immediately after that we began to get nervous under their pressure defense. We turned the ball over way too many times, especially when we had the lead.
Entiat battled to back to take numerous leads only to have us keep coming back also. With well under a minute left in the game they had an eight point lead probably thinking it was over, but I realized it is never over with this hard-working group of girls as Vetta, Marci and Hailey all came up with huge steals and baskets!
Once again we came up with another season high for assists with 16 this time. Entiat did a good job of blocking us out and limiting our offensive rebounds. In the end, though some big turnovers cost us along with the great free-throw shooting by Entiat's freshman guard.
Vetta Maynard was the leading scorer in the game with 22 points. Hailey Ellsworth and Marci Nelson both scored 11 points. Whitni England player stellar defense on Entiat's shooter all game and also poured in 7 points of her own. Veronica Vanderholm did a great job on defense once again defending much taller players and also chipped in with 5 points. Eva Escoto had anther great defensive game while also making a free-throw during the fourth quarter. Verna LaCourse had a steal in the game. Abby Bridgewater had one rebound and an assist for the game. Angelica Suarez shut down Entiat's shooter during the second quarter. Mindy Neal and Yessenia Escoto did not make on the court but provided great team support from the bench.
