Lady Hawks soar

OAK FOREST - Both teams started the evening off trading baskets and trying to make a stand early, but at the half, Shepard had a 3 point lead, 26 - 23, and neither team had any players in foul trouble.

Both teams struggled to start the second half with turnovers and missed shots. The Lady Hawks missed five straight shots. This short run on points came to an end with both teams scoring only 13 total point in the third quarter, Hillcrest 34 - Shepard 30.

"We put the hammer down in the locker room (at halftime) and challenge the girls to step up," said Coach Maniatis. "If we want to be a playoff caliber team then we need to respond tonight.  Uniquah Hampton showed why she is an All-American tonight."

Coach Maniatis went further giving strong accolades to Coach O'Conner, of Shepard, who is retiring at the end of the season. "They (Shepard) laid it all out on the floor for him tonight. I kind of feel sorry for some 4A teams who will faced them coming down the stretch. They are going to shock some teams especially with their size and versatility."

In fourth, Juanita Robinson and Uniquah Hampton stepped up as Coach Maniatis requested. The Lady Hawks went on a 9 - 3 run in the first 3 minutes and began to play press defense, which caused several key turnovers.  Then, right out of a timeout,

Hillcrest got three straight turnovers and scored six unanswered points to take a 10 point lead.

"I felt like we played okay, but we could have played better," said Ms. Hampton after the game. "They came out hard, they came out real hard. We just had to pick it up."

Indeed the Lady Hawks did... final score, Hillcrest 53 - Shepard 41.

The Lady Hawks take on Oak Forest Friday night for conference championship.  This should be an excellent game to attend!
