Lady Pats knock off Marvell
The Marshall Academy Lady Patriots handed new head coach Traci Rodgers a win in her first game.
But it did not come easy.
The MA girls let an 11-point halftime lead slip away but pulled out a 41-38 victory at Marvell Academy (Ark.) Thursday evening.
“The girls adjusted really well to a defense we hadn’t practiced against yet,” she said. “And the chemistry between the girls evolved throughout the game, which makes me excited about us continuing to grow throughout the season game by game.”
The Lady Patriots fell behind by three points in the opening quarter but a bucket by Julia Nicholson, then a three-pointer from Jessica Deming put them up 9-7 at the end of the first.
