The game was back and forth through most of the contest. Glasgow led 10-6 after the first quarter and took a 21-19 advantage into the locker room at halftime. The Lady Scotties led 34-33 as the fourth period began.
“We didn’t do a good job of getting to Glover’s left. She’s one of their best ball-handlers and we knew that,” Sparks explained. “We couldn’t turn her right. When we did turn her right, she would stop and give the ball up. But once she got a head of steam up, she just attacked the glass. We couldn’t catch her. Ninety percent of the teams we play don’t attack, they regroup and that plays into our hands. It was a great gameplan on Glasgow’s part.”
Now Stinson must prepare for Owensboro Catholic, who comes into Saturday’s game with a 19-2 record.
“It is about survive and advance. We’re going to enjoy this for about the next hour and then we’re going to turn our focus on Owensboro Catholic,” Stinson said. “You have to do this one step at a time, one step up the ladder. You can’t jump all the way to the top. We’re approaching it one step at a time.”
