disarmed the Rockets
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
Taheerah Ali after the game
24 - 22.

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”.
