On Monday February 26, the Mavericks travelled to Woodland P.S. to take part in a 6-team Area tournament. The girls got quick wake up calls by taking losses in their first two games to Louis-Honore Frechette and Willowbrook. The next game was a must win against Baythorn. The girls dug deep and pulled off a 15-9 win for their first win of the season. Talk about timing! Again, they had to take on the eventual champions in Frechette and another loss was added to their record. The girls then had a rematch, revenge game with Willowbrook. Only the winner of this game would advance to the Area Finals. It was a hard fought and physical game from the first buzzer to the last one. The Mavericks showed tenacity and shut Willowbrook down on the defensive end. They walked off the court with their heads held high and a 16-10 victory that will take them to the Area Finals next week. Coach Lieberman was very proud of how everyone played throughout the day. Go Mavericks!
