CROCKER 49-41 OVER NEWBURG

THEY MOVED THE GAME UP AN HOUR, AND IF THEY WOULD HAVE PLAYED IT BEFORE THE DISTRICT SEEDING MEETING, CROCKER WOULD HAVE THE 2 SEED INSTEAD OF THE 3 AFTER A 49-41 WIN OVER THE NEWBURG LADY WOLVES…THIS WAS A MAKE UP FROM JAN. 20TH WHEN WE WERE GRACED WITH MOTHER NATURE’S SNOW…
THE LADY LIONS CAME OUT, AND WHILE THEY FELL BEHIND BY 2 AT THE END OF THE 1ST QUARTER, THEIR DEFENSE AND EXECUTION PLEASED THEIR COACH….RICH MUELLER SAID “We played good defense, executed the game plan, and played hard….Too many unforced errors we need to clean up, and it could be a good run to the end..”
THE LADY WOLVES LAUNCHED 23 THREE POINTERS BUT ONLY HIT FOR FIVE..
CROCKER’S GAME PLAN WAS TO LIMIT NEWBURG’S 2 LEADING SCORERS AND WHILE THEY KEPT ONE IN SINGLE DIGITS, BAILEY BROOKSHIRE ENDED WITH 12, BUT IT WAS GRACE AFFOLTER WHO BURIED 15….
SKYLAR LAYMAN HAD 19 TO LEAD CROCKER AND ALL SCORERS.
AFTER FALLING BEHIND, CROCKER TOOK A 27-21 LEAD INTO THE LOCKER ROOM AT THE HALF, LEAD BY 5 AFTER THE 3RD AND WON THE 4TH, AND THE FRISCO LEAGUE GAME GIVING THE LADY LIONS A 3-1 MARK IN THE LEAGUE, AND 15-6 OVERALL…
