Forbush Girls Keep Their Hopes Alive

Updated on February 1, 2015

Calyn Davis

Taking Care of Business

The Lady Falcons have taken care of business against the conference's bottom teams, but are still looking for that signature win against one of the top teams. It almost came against North Surry last week as the Falcons took the Greyhounds deep into the fourth quarter before going cold in the final minutes.

West Stokes, on the other hand had failed to scratch into the win column in the WPAC. However, early on the Wildcats proved to be upset minded.

The Falcons trailed the Wildcats at the end of the first quarter by a score of 20-18. Offensively, the Falcons were getting to the basket, but not finishing. Calyn Davis was hot from the outside with two quick 3-pointers, and Sidney Matthews had scored a couple of breakout baskets to keep the Falcons close.

The second quarter was a different story. The Falcons clamped down on defense and managed to turn a two point deficit into a six point lead by halftime. Calyn Davis hit two more 3-pointers to run her total to 14 points. Shannon Holden had 6 points.

The two teams played pretty even during the third quarter (44-37), but the Falcons broke the game open in the fourth to cruise to the 69-53 win. Calyn Davis finished with 19 points, Shannon Holden 11 and Casey Brown with 9.

With the win, the Falcons sit one game back of Surry Central and two games back of North Surry who is still undefeated in conference play. Forbush can still challenge for the conference championship, but will need to run the table from here on out and get a little help from the Eagles of Surry Central to force a three-way tie.

Forbush is scheduled to play next at Carver on Feb. 3rd
