Battle of the Lady Paladins: Fellowship Beats Pinecrest on Senior Night
The Fellowship Christian School girls basketball team extended its win streak to three games on Senior Night.
Fellowship downed Pinecrest Academy, 32-27, in a Region game played at Paladin Gym.
“It was great to celebrate these five senior girls tonight -- Baylor Aycock, Cary Guthrie, Eliza Guthrie, Emma Jones and Rachel Rippen,” head coach Troy Schulz said. “These five girls have played in the program a combined 18 years and they all mean the world to me. As always I started the five seniors and they played extremely well in the first quarter outscoring Pinecrest 8-4.”
As a group FCS outscored them 9-3 in the second quarter to take a 17-9 lead into halftime.
“We talk about winning quarters,” Schulz said. “We have said all year the more quarters you win the better your chances are to win games. After halftime our offense was a little stagnant and we were outscored 6-5 in the third quarter. Pinecrest flat out played us in the fourth quarter [14-10] to make it an extremely close game, but the girls persevered and we were able to get the win.”
Sophomore Kaya Beard led all scorers with 12 points, while Cary Guthrie and Jones both had six points.
Fellowship has three games left. “Our motto is go 1-0 is the motto, and the girls were able to do that tonight,” the head coach said.
