“… They played a triangle and 2 and chased Brooke and Kensley all over the floor and Sophie was able to knock down some clutch three pointers for us.”
“… Playing without the Ward sisters tonight, we asked some kids to step up and they did. Kensley and Brooke gave us what is expected and it was nice to have the other Sophie and Tyra step up along with Abby always nice to put 4 players in double figures.”
“… Ellie Webb didn’t score as much tonight but she passed well and passed up a few shots she should have taken. She played well for us also. Our girls all played very unselfish looking for each other and that’s what we were very proud of. Always nice to start the season with a win.”
