The Sparks got off to a slow start early Saturday morning losing to the Hornets, but the afternoon was a different story. The girls were down by double digits against the Pontchatoula Hurricanes, but dug in their heels with great defense and team work to overcome that obstacle. Our defense was a dangerous weapon kept in check until the last five minutes of regulation. The Sparks kept the Hurricanes from scoring in that time period. The "press" defense went into overdrive and we tied the game at 23 all. Oh, but what does overtime do for the Sparks but ignite the fuse and the team explodes on offense as well. Aaliyah and Shakira went to work driving hard down the lane to the hoop to score. Cierra put her point guard moves on the floor crossing court to make those passes. Skylar and Kascity jumped right in putting the Defense on the Hurricanes causing them to turn the ball over time and time again! The final score was 35-28. We limited the Hurricanes to five points in a 3 minute overtime---while we scored an additional 12 points. Way to Go Sparks!
