“We earned this win. It was a hard fought game, truly intense because of what was in the line. I’m extremely proud of my players, who showed tremendous character in adversity (being down 14 points at the start of the 4th quarter). They dug deep and pulled it out. Says Atlanta's head coach Rita Hayward.
" A slow start put us down early and it was a uphill battle after. We are going to take this learn from it and perp for our rematch in a few weeks." Says Maryland Dynasty head coach koraun Chase.
It's always tough to play lopsided games. You want your kids to continue playing and working on the things they need to work on without purposely running up the score. I was pleased with their energy and execution. I don't think the score was an indication of how tough Gastonia is, they fought until the very end, and that alone deserves respect. Said the Atlanta Angeles owner "Melissa Johnson".
The Angels shot 80% (57-71) from the field. 68% (11-16) from behind the three point line and 8-13 from the free throw line. The win gives the Atlanta an 3-1 record. With the only team that beat them this season "Coastal Empire Lady Mornarchs" coming up next on the schedule.
