As soon as the ball was in play, we knew it was going to be a good game.
The Woodland Eagles took a visit to John Barsby in Junior Girls Basketball Action.
Both teams were steady and at the end of the first it was knotted up at 6 apiece. In the second, both teams played strong defence, but Barsby was able to take a two point lead 10-8 heading into the half time break.
The third was a different story, Woodlands defence kept very tight, only allowing Barsby to net one basket, while Woodlands got a few, 17-12 heading into the final quarter.
The final quarter played up to be the quarter to watch…Barsby caught back up, but with less than a minute to go Woodlands got the game winning basket, to beat Barsby 19-18!
Woodlands, #5 Mannraj Manhas got 6 points, while # 9 Megan Schelter and, #12 Taylynee Janvier both got a basket in the game. Barsby’s Kaitlin Ovcharov got 3 baskets, and Deyona Calori got 2 baskets in the game.
Both sides had solid defence!
