On Wednesday November 25th, the St. Petersburg College women’s basketball team defeated Skagit College with a final score of 81-60! The game started off a little slowly with the Titans only leading by two points. Both teams had their fair share of penalties throughout the game, but the free throws from the Titans were where they shined. They made almost every one, really bumping up their score. The Titan’s defense was excellent, but the team as a whole started to lose themselves through loss of communication between teammates. The coach and the crowd could see this on the court and through the score board as Skagit caught up right behind the Titans. By halftime, the score was 30-35 with Skagit in the lead.
What happened when the Titans were in the ladies locker room is unknown, but when they came back out on the court, they were ready to show everyone in the stands an amazing comeback. The energy from the Titans was self-evident, especially from the sidelines with other teammates cheering them on while they waited to join the game. In the blink of an eye, the Titans were back and now in the lead with a score of 63-54. The team’s communication was loud and enthusiastic, and their rebounds were exciting to watch. #44 got almost every rebound when Skagit shot towards the hoop. #30 positioned as point guard was helping to lead the offense to victory. All the ladies were using their tricks and talents and the game soon became an easy win with a final score of 81-60! Here’s hoping for another fantastic win next week against HCC!
