In an important SWC conference game the Edwardsville Lady Tigers were able to battle through for a 43-34 victory. Edwardsville got off to a hot start that O’Fallon answered to tie the game at 9-9. The first quarter ended 11-9 for Edwardsville and the Lady Tigers continued that run to 23-9. O’Fallon did battle back to 23-13 at half, but looked to be on the ropes. The 3rd quarter was back and forth and ended at 37-27. O’Fallon made a run in the 4th to get to 38-34 but could not close the gap any further. Despite not making a field goal in the 4th quarter Edwardsville made enough free throws to hold and extend the lead.
To get to be the best you have to beat the best. O’Fallon had a chance to do that at the Panther dome. In the end, it is not easy being on the other end. Nobody gives anything to Edwardsville. Despite their conference dominance they do not get 10 points added to their score for it! The Lady Tigers had to fight for this victory when they were not at the top of their game either. They did that and for that Coach Blade should be proud of her girls. They live to see another day in their quest for another SWC title.
