The SCA JV Girls traveled down south to Gilbert to face the Christian Knights at Agritopia on Tuesday night for their penultimate match of the year. The JV took the court after a long stretch away from the game, and the older and larger Gilbert Christian squad began to punish the team immediately.
Fortunately good defensive play from Abi Lund (#5) and Taylor Lach (#20) began to stem the tide, and Scarlett Isaacson (#11) was able to put the Eagles on the scoreboard with a lovely, high-handed shot, while strong rebounding from Bree Tobin (#31) helped keep the Eagles in the game.
The second half saw Izzy Thiessen (#4) work the in-bounds plays well, and Reece Gibson (#14) get onto the scoreboard, while Scarlett Campbell (#1) recovered from a poke in the eye to bring the ball up the court and start the offense. Julia Claus (#15) also began to rebound well, while Natalia Horan (#35) showed flashes of the instinct to drive that brought her such success early in the season.
