Taking on the canterbury cavaliers..the other section 32 semi--alaina rongos and her canterbury cavaliers--taking on the eastside blazers on their home court.tight game in the first half--canterbury starts to roll in the third.here's rongos with the stop, pump, and pop from the elbow--gets the jumper.canterbury leads by ten,watch this drive from eastside's maddisyn heffley.
The blazer blazes her way through the cavalier defense-- gets the layup to go--and takes a seat.that keeps eastside within eight.other end--sick move from canterbury's grace sullivan.
Crosses her over--steals her boyfriend!--and gets the lefthander to drop--keeping the cavaliers up by diuble digits.eastside would get as close as five late in the fourth--with plays like these.
Another fastbreak--heffley finds sullivan kessler for the also lefthander--but it woudln't be enough.canterbury pulls out a tough win--54 to 41--and they advance to the section 32 championship tomorrow.
Alaina rongos - canterbury - "on tuesday night, we came here to watch their game, so we knew their style of play.
And then those last two days of practice we really just focused on like what we needed to do on offense to go against their defence.
And i think, like, our excitement, and we knew we had a lot of momentum coming in, coming off like four out of five wins these past two weeks."canterbury head coach joihn beckman - "i mean, we kind of got beat up through the season with a lot of losses, kind of with the schedule we played.
I thought that that gave us a little bit of confidence to come in here to compete with these teams."
???bluffton and adams central meeting up in a class two-a sectional semifinal game.???we pick this one up in the third-- the bluffton tigers had a big first half--up by seventeen--???but don't count adams central out.
It's plays like this from the freshman sage hammond-- the steal and the layup-- keeping the game within fifteen.???but the tigers strong with the ball as well.here's grace miller on the break--she goes up--gets it to go!and one!????that keeps bluffton up big.
The flying jets still have some fuel.
Off the miss-- it's courtney lotter with the put back-- keeping them in the game.????but bluffton is just too much.
Here's allison powers on the putback for two.tigers still up in the fourth--and that's your final.
???bluffton wins 29 to 22--and the tigers have won sixteen-- and advance to the section 32 championship tomorrow, emme boots - bluffton - "in the frst came out really strong, and like, in the third quarter we got a little tired, but we knew we needed to stay in it.
We just kept pushing until the end.
Teaching us that if we play together, we can accomplish more.
So the more together we are, the more we can do as a team."grace miller - bluffton - "so what we've learned through this is no matter how bad you play, you need to work hard to pull out the w.
Whether it's good defense, or just being scrappy.
You just really want to push it out to the very end."
???lets take this one out to central noble where they play host to prarie heights ???central noble meleah leatherman collects the steal andshe'd finish the easy left hander???central noble this time sydney freeman would get the stealthis press would give prarie heights trouble all night???central noble meleah leatherman loves going to that lefthand doesnt she???central noble sydney freeman.
