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.
