Playoff Bball News

Last evening the girls began their quest for a gold medal by playing Charlottetown Rural in a semi final match hosted at Bluefield High School. The Blazers led by one point after the 1st quarter. In the 2nd quarter they had a six point lead and numerous opportunities to break open a rather tight game. These chances did not result in points and Rural managed to come back to keep the game close. The Blazers held a 23 to 22 lead after two quarters of play. The 3rd quarter featured more of the same and the Blazers held a 33 to 31 lead after the 3rd quarter in what was overall a very defensive game. The Raiders tied the game at 33 early in the 4th quarter. The Blazers went on an 8 to 0 run to take a 41 to 33 lead and force the Raiders to commit a number of mistakes. In the end the Blazers went on to post a 45 to 38 victory. This game was the best team effort of the season for the girls. Their passing in the offensive zone, as well as their defensive coverage was very good. Next action for the girls is Saturday at 2 pm at Bluefield when the girls will be playing for the gold medal. Their opponent for that game will be the Bluefield Bobcats.

Game stats:

  • Amanda scored 2 points and pulled down several rebounds
  • Briar drew tight man to man coverage all game. She dished out a large number of assists for baskets, pulled down several rebounds, and scored 4 points.
  • Maggy was very effective as point guard, drove to the basket several times and scored 6 points
  • Brittany had the best defensive game of her career, grabbed a few rebounds and scored 2 points
  • Alexis played some minutes as point guard, had some decent looks at the basket and was on the foul line for several shots. She managed to score a single point.
  • Molly came off the bench and had good playing minutes on both ends of the court. She was 4 for 4 in foul shots.
  • Sarah played her best defensive game of the season and had a few good looks at the basket.
  • Jill waited until the 2nd quarter to really give notice to the Raiders. She pulled down numerous rebounds on the offensive boards, sometimes for put backs as she out jumped everyone else on the court. She drove to the basket well and kept getting stronger as the game wore on. She scored 8 points on foul shots and finished with a game and career high 26 points.
