CALVIN CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL: 19

The JV girls stepped on the floor at Calvin Christian with discipline and set the tone of the game right away.  They played offense with patience and shut down their main scorers playing great defense. The 1st quarter ended 5-2 and the second quarter/first half ended 9-4. Calvin Christian came out the second half ready to gain control and came out with their pressure high, but could not crack the Spartans as they used the pressure to their advantage and got the ball to our posts to put in layups. The third quarter ended 17-9. Calvin Christian did not give up. They came out trapping and denying everything and knocked down some big shots to tie up the score 19-19. The stakes were high. We regained our composure and stuck to our game plan handling the ball well getting their opponent to make some fouls sending us to the line. Kenzie Howland put in two to give us back the lead. Needing to stay calm the girls got another foul drawn on Calvin sending Lily Hardenburgh to the line who knocked down another free throw, giving us a 3 point lead. With one second left Calvin needed to chuck the ball full court for a tip play with only one second left to score.  The Spartans left with a well earned victory!!!
