Posted Jun 4/11 - Oakland-Macomb hammered by Flint Lady Monarchs
So much for that "good feeling" after the first game. The extra week to prepare and make strides was all-but absent, as the home team from Flint showed why they're considered to be one of the favorites in the division.
With a core group back from last year, as well as an array of talented additions, the Lady Monarchs dominated almost every facet of the game, en route to a 37-point win over the RUN -- final score: 107-70.
In this league, 100 points is way too many to give up; and shows two things: 1) the winning team shot the ball extremely well; 2) the defense being played was not nearly effective-enough. When coupled with the poor shooting first half (unlike our first game); and an array of turnovers caused by the assertive efforts of the Flint squad -- a margin like this comes completely into focus.
Still, in looking for something to take from this game, the proverbial "wake up call"; as well as the fact that our athletes played hard the entire time, never giving up. Tonight, we just ran into a buzzsaw; the team from Flint, and they did damage.
