Following their 12th win of the season vs Elmwood Park on Tuesday, the girls began their toughest stretch of the season on Thursday with a disappointing effort at Glen Rock. Poor shooting, ball handling and rebounding were a recipe for disaster at the hands of the league’s best. However the hard lesson payed off on Saturday when the team faced Wayne Valley in the second round of the county tournament and turned in their best performance of the season in a thrilling game decided in the final seconds of overtime! Madison Wynbeek scored 22 and Brooke Van Lenten 16 as the Eagles almost pulled off the upset of the tournament. Solid defense from Kelly Tanis, Anna Kinz and Erin Vander Plaat along with a great team effort in handling the non-stop full court pressure kept the girls in the game to the bitter end when Van Lenten’s 3 pointer (under defensive pressure and contact) missed at the buzzer. Up next, a chance to compete against Rutherford, the league’s second best team on Tuesday.
