SHERWOOD — After a quarter, the Bryant White Lady Hornets seventh grade team of Bryant Middle School found themselves trailing the Sylvan Hills Lady Bears 7-0.
But the Lady Hornets stepped it up on defense and allowed just 4 more points the rest of the way and rallied for a 12-11 victory.
“Sylvan Hills was very aggressive and physical,” said Lady Hornets head coach Deanna Ward. “But we did not give up. We regrouped and played hard.”
Isabelle Terry hit a shot in the final minute of the game to provide the winning margin for the Lady Hornets. She finished with 4 points. Tatum Lewis had 5 and Talona Sprawling scored 3.
“Our post players also played hard with several big rebounds by Alexis Zaffina and Cori Brunson.”
