Galway Starts Strong! Almost pulls off the upset!

By Scott Alvarez | Sports
You knew Coach Deb Wilday, the longest active coach in section 2, would have her team ready to play against the highly rated Middleburgh Knights. The Golden Eagles came into the highly anticipated match with a 6-2 record behind the dynamic duo if Ashlyn Oneil and Hannah Pawlowski. The crowd was loud and pushed Galway to an 18-14 first quarter lead. Galway screened against the zone, which allowed Pawlowski to hit some uncontested three-point shots. Galway also boasts some size underneath behind 5’10 forwards Brittany Kenyon and Madison Ritter. The score at the end of the first half was 28-26 Middleburgh with much to be decided in the second half. Galway came out strong to start the second half but foul trouble hurt the team when forward Madison Ritter picked up her fourth about midway through the third quarter. Middleburgh took advantage extending their lead to four points behind leading scorer Lyndsey McCoy who finished with 26 points on the night. Galway cut the lead to 4 points midway through the fourth but there was not enough to hold off Bre Palmatier (13 points) , Kelsey Terrell (12 points) and the Middleburgh Knights. Galway now has a record of (6-3) on the season and (2-3) in league play in a very tough Western Athletic Conference which boasts Mekeel Christian Academy who are ranked third in the state amongst class C schools.
