had the wind at our backs we were all over them The second half was a little more even because we had the wind blowing up our NB starting defender Caitlin Buchanan suffered a minor con cussion in the first game and did not play in the second game Speck who is NBs starting sweeper col lided with a Denton player less than four minutes into the game and did not return due to a bruised ankle To

sec ond district game until the last game of the season This year were in the play off hunt and were feeling pretty good about The Unicorns 175 22 were feeling good about them selves in the first half after taking a 3020 lead midway through the second period But the Tigers 1113 13 went on a 134 run to take a 3534 advantage with 27 sec onds left before halftime We couldnt get as much penetration as
