Helias wins defensive struggle with Fatima

Helias wins defensive struggle with Fatima

January 29th, 2012 in News

COLUMBIA, Mo. - It's hard to imagine what was more jaw-dropping - Fatima's seven points in the first half Sunday, or the fact the Comets weren't out of it despite that low total.

The Comets and Helias Crusaders locked horns in a defensive slugfest in the MFA Oil/Break Time Shootout, and the Crusaders eventually made enough shots to pull out a 48-33 win at Mizzou Arena.

The teams scored the exact amounts in the third and fourth quarters, so it ended up being Helias' 14-5 edge in the first and 8-2 advantage in the second that was the difference.
