Playoff Bball News
On Sat pm the girls faced the Bluefield Bobcats in the gold medal game for the Senior A championship in front of a packed gymnasium at Bluefield High School. In the audience there were a number of teachers cheering on the players for both medal games from the KINK. The game stayed close through the 1st two quarters and at half time the Bobcats had a 21 to 20 lead in what was a fairly defensive game up until that point. To start the 3rd quarter, Bluefield threw on a taller starting lineup and it proved to be unstoppable for the Blazers. Before they knew it Bluefield scored 12 or more points and the Blazers were in a big hole. To make matters worse, scoring on the other end was difficult. At this point the Bobcats were in complete control of the game. The Blazers made a couple of rallies but the lead was just too much to overcome. In the end the Bobcats went on to post a 51 to 38 victory. This meant that the Blazers won a silver medal for their efforts.
- Amanda scored 4 points and had a few rebounds
- Briar scored 4 points and had a number of scoring assists, mainly to Jill down on the post
- Ashton scored 2 points and defended well
- Maggy scored 8 points and was effective as point guard
- Jill picked up her 4th foul in the 3rd quarter and was forced to be less aggressive on both ends of the court. She scored an equal number of points in both halves of the game and finished with a total of 20 points.
- Bailee, Sarah, Brittany, Alexis, and Molly all had good playing minutes on both ends of the court
Jill and Briar were selected as tournament all-stars.
The girls are to be commended for a great season. They were very committed to attending practice and worked hard at developing their skills. Kudos to you all for your efforts.
