JV Lady Mules @ Farwell Tourny (12-8-10-2016)
Look up ‘scrappy’ in your favorite Webster Dictionary, and a team picture of the JV Lady Mules just might be there. The Lady Mules scrapped their way to the Championship game of the Farwell JV Invitational Tournament over the weekend.
The Lady Mules squared off against the host Farwell Lady Blues Saturday evening.
The Lady Mules shocked the Blues with a full-court press and a quick fast-break offense. The Blues never recovered from the high-speed press and fast-break offense by the Lady Mules. The Lady Mules were up 17-7 by the end of the first period.
But the Lady Mules had so many fouls Farwell was in the double bonus by the end of the first quarter. But free-throw shooting was not the Blues long suit.
The Lady Mules backed off the press but continued to play tough half-court defense that continued to hold the Blues down. The Lady Mules led 25-14 at the intermission. Twelve of the 14 Lady Mules scored in the contest.
