Lady Stars disarmed the Rockets

TINLEY PARK  - It’s Tuesday night at Tinley Park high school, where the Rich South Lady Stars took on the Rich East Rockets in game 2 of the Class 3A regionals.  The Lady Stars were on fire in the first quarter, thanks to a shower of 3 pointers from Niara Harris and Taheerah Ali.  Both senior players finished the game with double digits points, Ali 24 points and Harris 16.

Going into the second quarter, the Rockets worked very hard, and somewhat strategic, to gain some momentum led behind the senior Sidney Streater who
had 10 points at the half with the score of

Starting the second half, the Rockets turned up the heat defensively and forced a few turnovers which lead to quick scores by Shaquala Armstrong and Brittany Miller.  However, the 5'7" guard, Ali kept the Stars on top with a shot from downtown and finishing the night going 4 of 5 from the charity stripe.

In the final quarter, the Stars focused a lot of pressure on the six-foot, senior Streater and clock management.  With about 4 minutes to play, the Rocket’s turned to another player, Diamond Burt, who hit a shot from beyond the arc which ignited the crowd. But despite the strong push by Rich East to close the gap, the Stars pulled ahead for the remainder of the game.  Final score…46 to 38. 

After the game, coach Mays said “we (the Lady Stars) started out alright defensively but backed off near the half.  There were some mistakes made in the passing game and in 1-on-1 defensive plays, which lead to a few turnovers, but in the second half, they got into their defensive 1-3-1 trap to hold off the Rockets”.

Rich South Lady Stars are set to play Tinley Park Titans for the Regional Championship on Friday, February 20th at 7:30pm. 

You can count on Amateur Sports to be in the house for this match up.
