Top-seeded Helias downs pesky Fulton
Tuesday, February 21, 2012
ELDON — There are no certainties once the postseason starts, and the Helias Lady Crusaders got a good lesson in that Tuesday night.
Despite holding the Fulton Lady Hornets to zero field goals in both the first and third quarters, the Lady Crusaders still found themselves in a one-possession game in the semifinals of the Class 4 District 10 Tournament.
Luckily for the Lady Crusaders, they were able to tap back into their earlier shutdown defense to come up with key stops in a 43-34 victory.
“We lost our composure there for a while, they cut it all the way to three and then we started making some plays again,” Helias coach Doug Light said. “You’ve got to give it to our kids. When it looked like we had lost the momentum, we made some stops.”
