16U Firecrackers at USJN Day 3: Firecrackers Storm Back

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: July 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

After late games (4:00pm and 9:00pm) in which the Firecrackers fell short twice yesterday, the Mainers had a gut check moment at 9:00am today against the perrenial strong Jersey Cardinals. The Firecrackers showed sound character by coming out with good energy but it didn't pay dividends as the ball refused to drop into the twine after numerous quality shot opportunities. Trailing 6-0 early, Kelsey Shaw had a freight train finish before Katie Butler made an immediate impact upon checking into the game with an offensive rebound and putback while having her head band ripped off. Butler scored again on a nice feed from Kelsey Shaw to make it 14-6 but the only other offense they were able to muster was a Mackenzie Holmes spin move and finish to go with 2 Jess Willerson foul shots and the Firecrackers trailed 17-11 at the half due to a 4-24 shooting slump. Coaches from Duke, BC, American, and Marist all looked bored but the Maine kids righted the ship in the second half.
