Lady Falcons played an away game at Cicero Prep in Scottsdale. With only a total of five players, the Lady Falcons were defeated 11-29. Leading scorer of the night was Paulina Martinez-Romo with 5 points, going 1-1 at the freethrow line, and driving down the lane twice for another two buckets. “The first half of the game was pretty good. Our defense was tough and aggressive, and we rotated correctly during the opposing teams quick ball movement. The only thing that caught us off guard was Cicero’s pressure on the ball full court. We seemed to turn the ball over quite a bit when we tried to dribble past the defenders down the middle. It didn’t help that we only had a total of 5 girls. We had one get injured half way thru the second half and so we played 9 minutes with only 4 girls. We still managed to score another 6 points, but my poor girls got tired near the end. They played a great game. Especially when down to four players, they made sure to be more active in rotating on the floor. It was a tough loss but I’m definitely proud of the way they played tonight! They displayed great effort! One last season game and we’re for sure looking for a win before we head into playoffs,” says Coach Brittany.
