Top-seeded Helias downs pesky Fulton

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."
