The JV game was really exciting. We trailed through the first half. Ellice A. helped keep us close scoring four, of our 12, first half points. Kareena P. scored her first points this season in the first half as well. The score after the first half was 16-12 in favor of Tintic. Stephanie S. came alive in the second half, scoring 6 points. The lead changed hands several times during the half and with 4 seconds left the score was tied. Jessi O. was fouled and went to the line to shoot free throws. She calmly made both of them. The buzzer sounded before Tintic could get a shot off and our JV team left the floor with their first victory of the season.
The Varsity game did not go as well. We started off well and had the lead at one point. The tight man to man pressure defense was tough for our girls to play against. We had not practiced against man to man yet and our girls, while playing as hard as they could, did not fare well. As mentioned however, the girls played with a lot of heart and not one of them gave up. As a team, we now know some of the things that we need to work on to improve ourselves. The final score of the Varsity game was 40 – 10. Alexa L. had 4 points before leaving in the first quarter with a sprained ankle. Ellice A had 4 points and Michaela B. scored 2.
Next up is Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant. That game will be on Dec. 1.
