8th Grade B Team defeats Leal in Epic Comeback
By: Mr. Solis
The 8th Grade B Team saved their best basketball for the second half on Thursday.
It was a defensive battle throughout the game with the Leal Apaches striking first. They
took a 6-0 lead going into the half and looked poised to come away with a road victory
against the Lady Knights. Coach Guerra calmed her girls down at halftime and the message
came across clear.
The Lady Knights scored 6 points in the 3rd quarter and played tough defense which
resulted in 0 points for the Apaches. Entering the 4th quarter both teams were squared
up at 6 points. The Lady Knights kept rolling on offense scoring another 6 points in the final
period while Leal only managed 1 point on a free throw in garbage time. In the end, the Lady
Knights had outscored Leal 12-1 in the second half to complete the comeback.
The 8th Grade A Team, led by Coach Hernandez, fought hard throughout their entire game
but were not able to overcome some early foul trouble. They were on the losing end of a 46-21
effort. Next up the Lady Knights will take on the Harlandale Braves.
