Gwinn, Michigan– 02/18/16– Our Gwinn Girls stayed home this Thursday night to take on the Norway Knights! This game was the last home game for our seniors Tori Lauren and Nichole Usher and the coach had many wonderful things to say about working with these two talented women. Mike and Justin brought you all of the game coverage on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and 99.9. Also, the game was streamed LIVE at GoToGwinn.com.
The game started off really special for our ModelTowner senior, Tori Lauren. She had recently broke her thumb and was unable to play this game but the two coaches agreed that it would be nice if she was able to start off the game with the tip. It was such a lovely gesture for such a great player. The first two points of the game were made by a Knight. Nichole Usher fought back with a three pointer in the first quarter! Tiara Taylor made a shot by an assist from Nichole Usher and right before the second quarter, Nichole Usher made another three pointer. 12-12 was the score at the end of the first quarter. Tiara Taylor made more baskets for Gwinn in the second quarter to keep up the score when the Knights started to take the lead. 17-30 was the score at halftime with the Knights in the lead.
The second half of the game, the Knights started to gain a steady lead. Tiara Taylor was a force in this game for Gwinn and she kept up her energy to keep scoring those much needed points. 23-29 was the score at the end of three with the ModelTowners trailing. Kia Evans scored in the fourth quarter for Gwinn and so did Anna Cole! 37-53 was the final score of the game with the Knights taking a win over our ModelTowner ladies. The coach was feeling good about how the game turned out without Tori Lauren and he made it clear that he will miss his seniors and that he is very proud of them.
