Lady Falcons Push WPAC's Top Team
The Lady Falcons are proving to be a tough out for any opponent as of late. The Falcons got out on the break several times in the first quarter as Sidney Matthews was able to leak free down court for a few baskets. She and the rest of the team scrapped on defense and managed a tie (27-27) at halftime. A lot of the scoring came from the hot hand of Calyn Davis who scored 9 points in the second quarter alone.
The Falcons continued to stay close, and only trailed by four points heading into the fourth quarter (43-39). In the fourth, it was Sidney Matthews that provided a lift for the Falcons. She scored a breakaway layup, and then drained a go ahead 3-pointer to give the Falcons ideas of an upset.
However, the Falcons went cold for the final couple minutes of the game. The Greyhounds took advantage of a few untimely turnovers to pull out the win by the final score of 56-49. The Greyhounds are now 6-0 in the conference while the Falcons are 4-2, one game behind Surry Central for 2nd place.
The Falcons beat South Stokes on Tuesday and now look to continue the streak against the Wildcats on Friday night in the friendly confines of the Falcon Gym.
Kelsey Swaim powers through the foul to earn a chance for a three point play. Kayla Shore rewards her with a hug; proving it is okay to smile and compete at the same time.
What Tough Looks Like
Kayla took a shot to the face in the second half and had to leave the game to get bandaged up. Good to see that she is alright.
Taylor provides the jumper in this photo, but it was her defense that provided the Falcons with several breakaways.
