FBC Defenders (Stone) Lose in Dogfight with Lady X-men at West 4th St. Tournament Semi-Final

The game against the Lady X-Men started quickly on Sunday morning at the Cage .  Walker attacked the lane off a missed jumper and finished with 2.  On an assist from Ashanti, Janissa hit a 3.  Shalette blocked a shot on the ensuing possession. The ladies started slow for the 2nd quarter with costly turnovers which led to fast break points for Lady Xmen.  The Defenders were locked in combat with the score 18-39 at end of the half.  We settled down defensively in the 3rd quarter.  Walker ignited the team with a 3, then Ashanti ended the quarter with another big 3.  We were down at the end of 3rd at 34-53.  Defenders poured on the defense in the 4th quarter, holding the Lady Xmen to 3 points until the middle of the quarter.  We were down 16 points in the 4th when Walker sparked an 8-0 run.  The Defenders fought hard to get back in the game, and showed heart as they finished strong.  If we had a few more minutes left on the clock, we may have have pulled off the upset.  Final score 50-58.  Great job ladies.
