Lady Hawks get past Forney
RED OAK - The Lady Hawks freshman, JV, and varsity basketball teams hosted Forney on Friday, Jan. 23.
Both the freshman and JV teams won their games.
The varsity girls had their hands full against a good Forney team looking to stay in the play-off hunt. After a quick start by the Lady Hawks, Forney started to come back and would eventually take the lead.
The game stayed very close and by halftime, the Lady Hawks were down by two.
During the second half the Lady Hawks came out more aggressive and took advantage of some steals and easy fast break points, but Forney kept the game close with some good outside shooting and three pointers.
During the fourth period the Lady Hawks began to pull away.
It seemed as if the Lady Hawks were faster and wanted the game more than Forney.
The Lady Hawks did a great job on the free throw line and down in the paint, while Forney’s outside shooting went ice cold.
Long shots usually mean long rebounds and the Lady Hawks were there waiting and pushed the ball up court for easy baskets and outscored Forney 17-2 in the fourth.
The Lady Hawks went on to win 64-47, but more importantly they played an all around good basketball game.
