SUMMIT VS. DELTA — HS GIRL’S BASKETBALL

The penultimate game of the girl’s regular basketball season, held Feb. 13 in Delta. The Tigers won in double-overtime, 54-48, to go 8-11 overall and 4-9 in the 4A Slope.

Senior Megan McDonnell had yet another showstopping performance, with 27 points on 10/20 FG’s & 6/7 FT’s (lead all scorers). She also led the team with 12 rebounds, two blocks and five steals for her eight double-double of the season. Junior Kate Tomlinson followed her with 15 points, while senior Jess Horii had four points and seven rebounds.

A recap from head coach Colton St. Peter:

Having just played a physically and mentally demanding overtime game just two days prior at Steamboat Springs, Summit was hoping to close the Delta game in regulation.

Initially the team moved the ball extremely well, finding open players along the wing and short corners for high-quality shots. The Tigers press also took hold early, earning steals for transition baskets that had Summit up 22-10 early in the second quarter. Delta then rallied and closed the half on an 8-0 run by putting the team out of sync with aggression on the boards at both the offensive and defensive ends.

The third quarter was close again, but Delta rallied in the fourth to outscore Summit 10-5 and force overtime. The first overtime was marred by missed shots and unforced turnovers by both teams, ending in a 3-3 draw. Summit found its rhythm in the second OT and Delta was forced to foul, sending McDonnell to the line three separate times in the final minute. On each occurrence she sank both free throws and Summit’s players countered each Delta possession by playing disciplined, determined defense.

While overtime games are difficult to play — especially when they are back to back — seeing players and the team as a whole come together builds confidence. It is also great for players to perform in high-pressure situations against good teams and execute a game plan on both ends of the court.
