This was an absolutely incredible game. We prepared better the week leading up to this game than we had all season and it showed. The girls were not nervous or scared to go out and play their best game of the season. What was most impressive was the fact that twice during the game they were down by double digits, but fought back to nearly tie the game each time.

The strong defensive effort was led by Olivia Klopf again. She really helped the team get back on D and find their mark. Plus some great defense from Jessica Yagoda near the end of the game led to break away points.

Our offense was a clear source in this game. Arete had no answer for our monster down low Tristi Edwards. She scored 22 of our 24 points and dominated the entire game. Her teammates Bella Quinn and Omera Ali made sure to find her open whenever they could.

It was truly a great thing to see the girls never get down and fight to the very end when they could have buckled because of previous experiences. Their heart and determination shined through!
