Skyline girls hold on to perfect league record
December 26, 2012
After ending the first half 12 points behind, the Skyline girls basketball team returned for a comeback and beat Woodinville 56-53 Dec. 19.
“The first half we just weren’t playing with the same intensity that we have defensively,” said head coach for the Skyline Spartans, Greg Bruns. “Every time we answered they would knock down a three.”
When the Spartans entered the locker room down 29-17, the coach told them to step it up and take more pride in who they are. So they did.
Haley Smith came out in the third quarter to score 10 of her 14 game points and Alex Daugherty put five on the board, including a 3-pointer. In total, Skyline blew away visiting Woodinville in the third quarter 23-11.
“Those are big shots when the game is on the line,” said Bruns.
The win over Woodinville gave the Spartans a 5-0 league record.
