What a county rivalry. It might have been billed as the “Silent Night” game, but it was anything but silent! In all four games the noise was deafening, and the play was extremely intense.
In the JV & Varsity Girls games, North and West played each other hard with North taking control in the final moments and winning the games close.
For the nightcap, North Henderson has been a very talented team for many seasons, and in recent years they have dominated their West Henderson rivals, and the players on the court knew it. The young West team now has more experience than ever before, getting taller and stronger in the off-season. North is still a local powerhouse, and they played strong and hard. But West was ready. The Falcons lead the game for most of the night, but in the final minutes of the fourth quarter North came charging back and tied the game. The teams traded baskets, and as the final buzzer sounded the teams were tied.
In overtime, the intensity of the game was even stronger, as all the players left everything they had on the court. During this overtime period, West Henderson’s Ben Bryson continued his high level of play and sunk multiple foul shots from technical fouls, which made the difference in the game that West went on to win 76-59.
Congratulations to both teams in all the games for their high level of play in all the games. It made for one very memorable night of basketball!
