     Girls varsity basketball faced state-ranked and perennial powerhouse, Marshall High School 61-68.

     Before the game started, this past Friday the team knew they had to put up a fight and play their game right if they wanted a win. The practices leading up to the game were specifically in preparation to go up against Marshall; focusing on playing with ball pressure and running plays against the Junior Varsity boys basketball team.

     The first half of the game began with the tip off which gave the Eagles a rough start by losing 37 points. The team didn’t adjust easily and didn’t make the necessary changes they needed in the beginning of the game according to junior Sophia Nijem who plays forward.

     “I believe that we had a slow start and didn’t have strong defense in the first half,” said junior forward Sophia Nijem via text message.

     “That was a huge adjustment that we had to make that allowed us to stay in the game. Even with picking up defense, other things needed to be changed. As a team we needed to take care of the ball much better and slow down on offense,” said Nijem.

    At halftime the score was 27-37, but the Eagles came back in the second half getting within five points of the Commandos in the fourth quarter. 

     With the loss, the Eagles fall to 14-10 so far this season. The Eagles are working hard and have their first playoff game against Von Steuben at home Tuesday Jan. 23.
