7th Grade A-Team Lady Knights Defeat Lady Chargers in Gutsy Fashion
September 8, 2016
On Thursday evening the 7th Grade Kingsborough Lady Knights A-Team defeated the Gus Garcia Lady Chargers in a tense battle. By the end of the third game, it was a shame one team had too lose because both teams left everything they had on the floor.
In the first game the Lady Knights struggled with some early season jitters and were down 4-2 early. They managed to make a small comeback and the rest of the game was a back and forth affair. One team would go up by one, then the other team would strike back and regain the lead. Nearing the end of the first game, the Lady Chargers took a 19-16 lead, threatening to steal the first game. The Lady Knights dug down deep and forged a comeback. They went on a 5-1 run regaining the lead 21-20. The last few sets were tense but the Lady Knights were able to handle the pressure and win 25-23.
Game two was very similar to game one. Neither team was able to gain a significant lead on their opponent. Again, the game came down to which team could capitalize in the final moments. This time the Lady Chargers were down 19-16 and they showed they were a team who could make a rally of their own. They went on their own 5-1 run taking a late 21-20 lead. The Lady Knights had their opportunities but could not finish off the Lady Knights. The Lady Chargers tied up the series 1-1 with a 25-21 win.
In game three the Lady Knights came out focused. They took an early 6-2 lead. With momentum on their side, the Lady Knights looked poised to run way with an easy victory. The Lady Chargers made sure that this would not go down without a fight. Down 9-5 the Lady Chargers called timeout and came out with their final push. They got with one point, 10-9, before the Lady Knights regained control. The Lady Knights were able to go on a 4-1 mini run all but sealing their victory. The Lady Chargers didn’t quit, but in the end, the Lady Knights finished off the Lady Chargers 15-13 winning a tightly contested series.
Next up the Lady Knights take on the Leal Lady Apaches on September 15.
