Goodwin Too Much For Mustangs

Carol Willie and Erin Caldwell are the posts for Cy Falls and they both played well against North Sore however on a night that I saw the two best teams in the area shoot the worst that I've seen them shoot, I figured North Shore might have a chance for an upset but Loryn Goodwin wasn't about to let that happen. Despite five early points from Courtney Williams that kept North Shore close, Goodwin went off early and kept the pace throughout the game. Trailing only 12-11 after one, North Shore didn't score until it was under a minute left in the half. Equally unimpressive was the fact that Cy Falls scored only seven points as it was 19-13 at the half, something I expected the leading scorers from both teams might have

Shernise Robertson heated up while Goodwin continued to do her thing in the third quarter as they held  North Shore to only five points while extending the lead to 35-18 and that was basically the ball game there. North Shore put up an admirable fight just to get here, especially without Monique Bedford who they lost back in December. This is not the way Williams wanted her career to end however they just don't have the firepower that Cy Falls has

 Goodwin led the Eagles with over 20 points and she probably had at least 10 rebounds however they are running into an Elsik team that is simply playing outside of the box and this should be an interesting match-up
