After trailing by 5 at halftime, the Hawks made a strong 2nd half surge. Halfway through the 4th, they were able to take a one point lead that they just weren’t able to hold. Freeland’s size and ability in the post gave Heritage problems all game long. In the first half, the Falcons did an excellent job getting points off post touches. In the second half it was Freeland’s rebounding advantage that doomed the Hawks comeback. Twice in the last minute, Freeland missed free-throws but were able to secure the offensive rebound and run more clock. The close game will be a great learning opportunity for Heritage moving forward. The girls really worked hard, but in crunch time it comes down to execution. We’ll get back in the gym on Wednesday and work on taking care of the ball, boxing out, and communicating. The Hawks will resume their schedule as they travel to Midland Dow to take on the Chargers @ 5:30 on Friday.
