Watkins Mill upset Churchill Girls in a Nailbiter

The girls played a very tough game in their portion of the double-header Friday night. The Lady Bulldogs came in as the much expected winner. The Lady Rines were the underdogs but they came in looking to rebound from a loss to the Lady Trojans and to get motivation going into the playoffs. The section of fans on both sides were loud and really into the game, as were the players. The first half was even all throughout. No team had the game going their way in the first half.

Coming out in the second half of the ball game the Lady’s continue to hit shots back and forth and play tight defense all the way up untill the last-minute or so of the game where Senior Guard Josepha Mbouma drives to the hoop for a clutch basket giving the Churchill Lady’s one more opportunity to score but the Lady Rines held them off with tough defense, and win there last regular season game 46-45

Congratulations to the Wolverines.
