The Madeleine scored four points in the first 5 minutes of the game and held Holy Trinity scoreless until the last minute and 20 seconds when Holy Trinity scored their first hoop. At the end of the first quarter, it was Madeleine 8 Holy Trinity 2.
As the second half opened, Holy Trinity added four more points in the first two minutes to come within two. The height on the Holy Trinity team especially Kendra #42 was a factor under the basket and she wasn’t shy going for the rebounds.
With less than 2 minutes left in the game, Holy Trinity went ahead 19-10, holding the Madeleine to 2 free throws the second quarter of the game.
The third quarter, after pep talks by both coaches, saw both teams with a renewed surge of energy. Holy Trinity finished the quarter with 13 new points and Madeleine 2 for a quarter ending score of 32 – 14 Holy Trinity.
The Holy Trinity defense forced Madeleine to take perimeter shots while the Holy Trinity team was able to break through for inside shots and most often obtain the rebound for the second and third try. When Madeleine did get it to the inside they were not able to convert. This write believes that the height factor for next year’s sixth grade girls will make a big difference!
Game Final: Holy Trinity 42, Madeleine 17
