Foxes sweep Chargers varsity

After defeating the Lady Chargers varsity basketball team 60-43 on their home court on Jan. 5, King George continued their dominance by defeating their hosts again, 44-32.
Brittany Kersey led all Fox scoring with 13 points, while Stephanie Beverly added 10 points. Collectively, with the efforts of Timeah Brooks (5 points), Kara Brabant (7 points) and Stephanie Watts (3 points), the Foxes simply outworked their district rivals.
Elated over her team’s performance, Fox girls’ varsity head coach Jessica Forsythe said: “They came out tonight and played very well. This is a hard gym to play in, because the crowd’s right there with you, making it intense. Although their team has always played hard, we responded well.”

Brooks, Kersey and Beverly combined for 10 points to give the Foxes an early 10-4 lead in the first quarter. The Chargers quickly responded with a 3-pointer and a jumper by guard Crystal McConnell to cut the Fox deficit to one going into the second quarter.
The second quarter became a battle of offensive boards and trading baskets. While the Chargers managed to keep the game close at 20-19 before halftime, it was apparent that the Foxes were slowly beginning to dictate the tempo of the game.
In the third quarter, with 1 minute 29 seconds on the clock, the Chargers gained the advantage when Maya Wright scored a fade-away running jumper to tie the game at 26-26. The Foxes finished the quarter with a 5-0 run, taking the lead 31-26.
Beverly started the Fox scoring in the fourth quarter with a hook shot, which was followed by two layups by Kersey. In an act of desperation, the Chargers utilized their version of a full court press. With less than a minute left on the clock, the Foxes continued to dominate the post area, limiting the Chargers’ possibility of a late rally.
With districts in the not too distant future, and three days of game cancelations due to snow, the victory over Chancellor should give King George a boost in their confidence.
