Lady Colts overpower Warriors
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The Logan Lady Colts beat the Mission San Jose Warriors girls basketball team on January 24th by a score ofÊ54-36 in an impressiveÊoffensive performance, demonstrating early in the game why they are the girls basketball team to beat in the Mission Valley Athletic League.ÊWith a one game league lead overÊthe Moreau Catholic Mariners, the Colts were determined to prove they belonged at the top of the standings.
Opening with a great display of transition basketball, the Lady Colts gave the Lady Warriors no time to set up an effective defense. The Logan attack seemed to come from everywhere at once; in the first three minutes of the first quarter, Colt speed was impressive, moving the ball down the court at will, driving into the shooting lanes and picking shots at will. Lady Colts also took control of the paint area and never gave it back. In the first half, the Lady Colts opened an 18 point lead.
The Warrior women were able to regroup and slow the Colts a bit in the last half with some nice defensive plays and good outside shooting, but it was too little, too late.
