Girls varsity basketball looks to defeat the Poolesville Falcons at home on Friday after a sad loss against Blake High School on December 21 and a tough loss of 45-52 against Magruder High School three days earlier.

The girls fought hard but ultimately fell short against the Blake Bengals, 46-65. “I feel like we should have definitely beat that team but, overall we played a good aggressive game,” sophomore Heaven Atta said. The girls gave it their all but, could not get past Blake’s offense.

In the last game of 2015, The Lady ‘Rines came out in the first quarter and took the Colonels by surprise. They played very physically, fouling and blocking shots, making sure that Magruder made nothing from outside or off the dribble. Magruder’s foul shooting was the only thing that kept them alive in the first half.

They were able to keep this momentum through the third quarter. Junior Ameshia Moyd said this was due to, “Moving around the ball, finding open spots, passing, [and] getting open shots every time we got [the ball].”

“We kept hustling, even if the score [did not] turn out like [we wanted]; we kept hustling. We scored. It wasn’t just one person scoring, it was everyone,” junior forward Shawna Mcdougall added.  

 “The game went [well] actually… it was a close game all the way until the fourth quarter,” Moyd said. Magruder finally woke up during the last few minutes. As they started to pick up the pace, Watkins Mill’s lead slowly slipped away from their grasp.

“We get [in] a lot of foul trouble,” Mcdougall said. “I just think we need to focus on certain things like dribbling the ball up [the court] and getting past that person…Everyone has improved, we’ve been [very] aggressive on the offensive end.” 
Come out to the Lady Wolverine’s next game tipping off against the Poolesville Falcons tomorrow night on our home court at 7:15pm. Orange Nation let’s show our pride!
