After a tough week consisting of two hard-fought loses against two strong league opponents, what my team needed was a bounce back game.
After losing to our rival Boiling Springs at home, we headed to York Tech on Saturday. This game turned out to be just what the team needed. Although we lost to Boiling Springs Friday night, the energy, hustle and heart we played with in that game all carried over to Saturday’s afternoon game.
Right from the tip-off we were playing good basketball, knocking down shots and doing Coach Creek’s favorite thing: playing strong, aggressive defense. All these factors combined with a York Tech opponent who was not ready to handle our zone resulted in a Bulldogs win by close to 20 points.
This game came at just the right time as we now have a boost of confidence heading into important league games this coming week. In a league as talent-filled as ours, the fight to stay above .500 is tough. At (7-6) our goal of playoffs is not out of the picture, however, we will need to step up our play in league games in the near future to keep those hopes alive.
