The game started on time and as scheduled. Both teams were warming up and exercising. You could see the anticipation on every one of the young ladies faces. The girls anxiously threw and passed various amounts of balls. Practice must really make perfect. Both leaders of each team took the course into sequence. They each informed their teammates on what to do next; #4 was the leader for the Titans.
After their final rounds of exercise, the teams went into their locker rooms for their last pep talk before the game. The game started with a lot of intensity with #34 from the Patriots putting up the first 2 points, followed by another 2 points scored by a fellow Patriot. The Titans had yet to score, but #30
changed that by scoring the first but not final 2 points of the game. She stood out from the rest of the players, quite fast on her feet and obviously a valuable player.
The game would not have been proper without cheerleaders. They cheered along with great enthusiasm, making sure to uplift their home team as supposed to. The Titans seemed to be in hot water through every quarter, which did not look good. The Patriots gained an enormous lead against the Titans, and while it remained win or lose, the Titans fought to catch up. Halftime ended the Titans grabbing another 3 points.
The struggle continued and the ladies of each side never gave up. Everyone seemed to play a fair game. There were a few bumps and bruises and even a limp off the court; however, they all acted like true women. The final score 43 to 76 was a great win by the Patriots. The opposing team played with great strategy and skills. Although our home team did not win, they played hard which in the end makes them winners, no matter the outcome.
