The North Pointe Lady Falcons battled against the Anthem Prep Eagles in their home opener. Inconsistencies in serve receive and a few difficult rotations for side out led to the Falcons’ loss 0-3. “Even though we lost the match, it doesn’t feel like we were beat. The girls really battled and kept their energy up the whole match. The first one is always a little rocky rediscovering the rotations and getting back in the swing of things. I’m really proud of the way we passed tonight, we just weren’t able to convert good passes to points,” says Coach Wolfer about tonight’s contest. The Falcons have a busy week with an away game vs. Gilbert Christian and another home game against Flagstaff’s Northland Prep.
The Falcons went back on the road tonight and faced a team that went to the Elite 8 in the postseason last year. The Spartans struggled to start but NEVER QUIT ONCE. The Falcons played great trap defense and forced over 15 turnovers tonight. Jay Brodeur led the Falcons tonight, scoring, defensively, and with intensity. Falcon Nation also traveled strong and made their presence felt tonight on the road in Scottsdale. “Scottsdale Prep is a heck of a team. They made the playoffs last year and we fought them hard. We made them work for every shot. Jay led the way making a spot start and brought the intensity. We narrowed a double digit deficit to a point difference, but ultimately they prevailed. Tough but fun game, we look forward to taking on Camp Verde Tuesday. We still LOVE BASKETBALL!!” – Coach Lalonde
