OhioBasketball.com West Side Fall League Review – Week 3
Game of the Week Varsity I
Fierce vs Believe
In this David vs Goliath match up, The undersized Believe team used their overall team speed and the shot making ability of Hanna Clark to hold a small first half lead, as Fierce use their size and strength to keep the game close.
With Gabbi Baldrige pulling down rebounds for second chance shots and April Bocian contesting everything that came at the basket on the defensive end. Just to stay within striking distance midway thru the game. At the start of the second half behind a couple 3’s by Camryn Brown (Fierce) and a couple of inside baskets from the two posts Gabbi and April, Goliath pulled within one. Just when the tide was going to change, Hanna Clark and Katie Karalic of Believe scored a pair of leak out baskets to help them maintain the lead and win the game. I guess the bottom line is David believed.
David(Believe) 46 – Goliath(Fierce)43
