FBC Defenders (Stone) Beat St. Anthony’s 31-29 at Fall Rose Classic

FBC Defenders (Stone) looked a bit rusty as they eeked out a victory at 31-29 over St. Anthony’s (Long Island) in their first game in the Fall Rose Classic on September 18th.  St. Anthony’s took the ball at the opening tip down the court for a layup to start up by 2.  Walker had a steal and went coast to coast for a basket, tying the score at 2-2.  Some good defense by the Defenders forced a travel call on St. Athony’s.  Janissa hit for 3 to bring us to 5-4.  On an assist from Walker, Tia hit for 2 and 1!  Ashanti knocked down a 3 to bring us up to 11-8.  Aliyah got fouled in the post and hit both baskets.  We started to look a little anemic as we came to the end of the half.  St. Anthony’s took the lead by 1, with the score at 12-13.

The 2nd half got started with a 3 pointer by Walker to bring the score to 15-13.  St. Anthony’s came right back with a layup and the foul to go ahead 15-16.  Shalette then got a block and steal, and passed to Walker who hit a jumper.  The two teams stayed neck and neck throughout the 3rd quarter: 17 -17, then 19-19.  The play started to get very sloppy, with bodies flying around.  We ended the 3rd quarter down 19-23.   In the beginning of the 4th quarter, Tia grabbed an offensive rebound and had a putback for 2. Shalette dished off to Tia for another basket.  We continued to see a lot of sloppy passes.  Walker hit a 3 to put us ahead 26-25.  Walker then drove to the basket and got fouled.  The score was tied 27-27 with 3 minutes left.  Shalette went in for a layup, got fouled, and made 2 of 2.  We were now up 29-27 with 2 minutes left.  Jenean put up a shot from under the basket for 2.  Defenders up 31-27 with 38 seconds left.   We finished out the game with a 31-29 win.
