SPRINGER — The Springer Lady Devils basketball team has had two busy weeks of competition.
In the first round of three day tournament play at the Evangel Christian Academy Tournament in Albuquerque, they faced Mesilla Valley Christian School, and out scored the Sonblazers in three of four quarters to win the game with a score of 60-34.
The Lady Devils kept the momentum rolling in the semifinal game against the tournament host team, Evangel Christian Academy, winning 91-44, with good teamwork proving to be the winning factor as four of the Devils scored in the double digits.
The win put them into the tournament championship against the Espanola JV Sundevils. An intense four quarters led to overtime where the Lady Devils ended up losing with at least three of their starting five fouling out.
Back at home in Springer, the Lady Devils played the Questa Lady Wildcats in a challenging game with an enormous amount of fouls and injuries. The Lady Devils came out on the losing side and were unable to take the coveted Cowbell from the Wildcats.
To end the week, the Lady Devils traveled to 1A Grady where the teams were closely matched and played an exciting game. The Lady Devils came out slow in the third quarter, outscored 18-10. The Devils fought hard to narrow the margin and win the game, but just did not have enough time, losing 58-45.
Although the Lady Devils lost both of their games this past week, they are working to improve their game and are looking forward to their next opportunity to come out on the winning side of a game.
