William Tennent Comments

After an incredible come from behind win on Tuesday, the Lady Panthers fell short tonight losing 50-30 to Council Rock North. Tennent struggled early to score and found themselves down 15-6 after the first quarter. They managed to cut the lead to six with about 2 minutes left in the first half before North answered with a three pointer and an offensive rebound and put back on consecutive possessions giving North an 11 point advantage at the half. Despite holding North to only 7 points in the third, they only scored 6 points themselves and were never able to get it under 10. A 13 point fourth quarter performance by North's Sydney Blum extended the lead and sealed the win. Haley Crossley lead Tennent with 19 points.
"My biggest fear going into tonight's game was whether or not we were going to have a let down after our big win on Tuesday, said Coach Whitney. We expended so much energy to come from behind, that I wasn't sure if we could match that intensity tonight for 32 minutes. Council Rock North is a very good team, and they make you pay for any mistakes. Defensively we gave up too many offensive rebounds and left shooters wide open, and to their credit they knocked them down. The last two games we have struggled to get our offense going and been inconsistent defensively. We must find a way to come out stronger and avoid putting ourselves in these tough positions where we are playing from behind."
