Spartans Win at Belding to Start 3 Game Week

Game Date

Score
: 47
BELDING HIGH SCHOOL: 30

The law of averages was a concept talked about in the locker room at half time of our 47-30 win over Belding on Tuesday night. We started the game missing 6 straight shots and struggled to get out of single digits on the scoreboard. Luckily, we remained true to our identity as a tough nosed defensive squad and held Belding to an even lower offensive output. Belding's very talented backcourt was a threat all night and was kept at bay the first half by a tremendous team effort on the defensive end. Then, the law of averages. Paige Wilson came alive from behind the arc hitting big 3 after big 3, giving us a huge spark in the second half. Timely 3 point buckets from Ashley Cowdrey and Boo Driscoll ensured that we stayed ahead. Belding followed the law of averages as well and started to hit shots of their own. However, Kensey Armock and Ashley Cowdrey stepped up huge and together combined for an essential 8-1 run that put us in the driver's seat for the rest of the game. Defensive and rebounding performances from Britt Busen and Avery Peot were critical down the stretch during Belding's attempt to mount a comeback. Again another complete team effort for the win!

 The JV team had an awesome showing and got their first win of the season at Belding. A dominating performance from first throw in (I miss the jump ball!) to the final horn. The JV squad had great showings in their first games but could not get over the hump. They put all the pieces of the puzzle together at Belding and Coach KD and Coach Richards have themselves a gritty team! A lot more winning to come for them!
