U16 GIRLS IN THRILLER AGAINST PHOENIX

27 FEB 2017 | BY JOHN KENNEDY

The U16 Girls took victory in this highly anticipated top of the table game in dramatic fashion. With 0.2 seconds left on the clock, Naoishe was fouled going for a three point shot and stepped up to the free throw line. She held her nerve and scored one of baskets to take the win 30-29.
The Girls led 7-6 after a tight first period, with Phoenix scoring two late baskets in the period. Phoenix stepped up the pace in the second period and with the Tigers girls missing several chances, Phoenix led 16-12 after the second.
Coach Clare changed things up in the third period and the Tigers girls responded by going on a scoring streak and led 25-20 at the end of the third.
Phoenix fought back in the fourth to lead 29-27 with 2:06 left, but again the Tigers fought back to tie it at 29-29.
A fantastic jobs from all the Girls this evening.

We do it all again in the return game on the 12th March.
